Michelle graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2003, with a B.S. in Criminal Justice. Subsequently, she worked in nuclear security, and later, as a paralegal. Pushing paper for attorneys is not as fun as it sounds, and she’s always loved technology. So, with the support of her husband, she left a paralegal career, and went back to school. She obtained her Master’s Degree in Software Engineering as well as her Graduate Certificate in Cyber Security and Information Assurance from USC. She hasn’t looked back since! Fun fact: In her younger years, Michelle was an avid paintball player and was once invited to play on a semi-professional team!

MEET OUR TEAM
Sonja taught herself C++ in the late ’90s, and has been hooked on software development ever since! She absolutely loves creating beautiful apps and pages that customers love, too! The joy of creating something beautiful has never wavered, even after all these years. She enjoys learning new technologies and chatting with customers, listening to their ideas, and guiding them to understand not only what they want, but also what they need. Sonja has a passion for other things, too: her grandsons, sewing, and floating in the pool on a sunny day! Fun fact about Sonja: she is a Level 2 Commando in Krav Maga, so she feels safe in dark places!
OUR CLIENTS LOVE US
Being passionate about the problem a company solves, working extremely hard to deliver a stellar experience to customers, accountability and ownership of things well done and missteps that occur – all are a mark of an extra-ordinary employee. I have had the good fortune to manage Sonja and the commitment and determination she has to write great code and create awesome experiences for our customers is phenomenal. There is a lot I learned from her while being her manager and I am very appreciative of that. I highly recommend Sonja.
I worked with Sonja for eight years, on numerous projects. She has a wide variety of technical capabilities, and is always teaching herself new skills. She constantly thinks about the “user experience” of the software under development, and brings inventive ideas to every interface she implements. She communicates well both in writing and in person, and spends the necessary time to make sure that requirements are clear. She is very organized and productive, manages time well, is always available, and has an outstanding work ethic. There is quality and attention to detail in everything she does. She is an exceptional problem-solver, and can always see things from multiple points of view. She’s easy to work with, has a great attitude and sense of humor, and encourages and helps other team members. You can rely on her to deliver on time, and can trust the functionality and stability of the code she produces. I have really enjoyed working with her, and hope our paths will cross again in the future.
I have worked with Sonja on multiple projects through the years at mindAmp and Unitrends. She is a highly-skilled developer who not only builds robust software but is also very passionate about working with and listening to customers, and delivering new features in a timely manner that delight them. Sonja is very versatile and can work at all levels of the UI/REST API stack. I’ve seen her lead projects and work on project teams, and in all cases, she communicates clearly and quickly completes her tasks with a high level of quality.
I would strongly recommend Sonja and B Squared Development for any type of software project, large or small.
