Sonia Frederick

Sonia began her career in state and local government consulting at KPMG, LLP, in 2017.  Prior to that, Sonia attended the University at Albany, graduating with honors and earning a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Business Administration.

Outside of work, Sonia devotes her free time as a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with Delmar-Bethlehem’s volunteer squad.  In this role, she provides urgent medical care to those in need and has become educated in the role public health initiatives have in maintaining a healthy community.  Being appointed as Albany’s First Ward Common Councilmember and the second Latinx to serve on the Council, Sonia is determined to earn the support of her neighbors and community and represent the Ward that she loves.

Sonia is a proud, first-time homeowner of a fixer-upper on Sparkill Avenue with her long-term partner, Antonio, and their dog, Oliver.  As a homeowner, Sonia has created strong ties with her neighbors and works towards making her neighborhood feel welcoming to all.
