As a successful business executive and entrepreneur, Sonja Hoel Perkins understands the importance of self-confidence and community support. When she wanted to inspire at-risk teenage girls and women to believe in themselves, she founded Project Glimmer to help them feel more special, dream big and let them know their community cares. A recipient of the esteemed Jefferson Award, Sonja has been intimately involved with Project Glimmer from its inception through its nationwide expansion. She credits First Republic with supporting the organization’s growth, believing in its mission and championing the power of dreaming big.
