Sonja Hudson's Bio

Sonja has been in the Grey Highlands area all her life.  Her parents built a family cottage on Lake Eugenia in 1964 and she cherishes her childhood memories of summers at the cottage.   While working in Toronto, she met her husband who as it turned out had a family cottage in the same area as she did growing up and later discovered that they had met as children in a tree house Sonja used to go to with her sisters.  Sonja and Brent were  married at Lake Eugenia and soon afterwards they started to build their own place at Lake Eugenia, opening up the Treehouse Bed and Breakfast. 

Sonja’s  diverse professional life has given her over 15 years’ experience in real estate development, construction and project management.  She has been part of an award winning Customer Care Management team whose program was emulated by Tarion (formerly the Ontario New Home Warranty Program). 

Sonja’s love for the Grey Highlands area has lead to her involvement in an area accommodations association, a community improvement association and a tourism initiative steering committee.   Sonja and her family explore the area every chance they get and enjoy all the attractions of Grey Highlands.  Being members of Beaver Valley Ski Club, Sonja and her family enjoy getting outdoors in every season.   Sonja enjoys applying her skills and passion for the Grey Highlands area towards initiatives that will help boost the local economic development and now hopes the initiative will be a part of that as well.
