Sonya Keller

Position Title: 
Director of Operations
Professional Background: 

Sonya has been at Stanford for five years and has a background in higher education administration, business process analysis, and quality assurance. Prior to Stanford, she was at Harvard University where she was the Faculty Services Coordinator for the Sociology department.  Before entering academia, Sonya was a consultant in sales, marketing, and service with The Fisher Group (Beverly, MA) and a Senior Program Coordinator in Clinical Quality Improvement at Tufts Health Plan (Watertown, MA).

Why I am at SCOPE: 

I believe that good education is a fundamental human right and has the ability to change lives, elevating the oppressed like nothing else I have witnessed.  Personally, my own public school education provided me with tools I would not have otherwise received and allowed me to create the life that I chose to lead rather than one prescribed. I believe that same experience should be available to everyone. SCOPE’s mission aligns with and powerfully focuses on attempting to make that belief a reality.
