Welcome Sonia Spencer!

October 27th, 2022 | News

I’m honored to join RMHC-Madison and its mission as the Operations and Volunteer Coordinator. Before this role, I served as the Community School Resource Coordinator for Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) at Mendota Elementary Community School. My work there was focused on providing and building wrap-around services for Scholars and their families, as well as managing the many different volunteer activities from 1:1 tutoring to organizing a block party with 100+ volunteers. My experience and background align with RMHC’s mission and vision, ensuring every family is valued and supported. While also building a strong network of dedicated, devoted, and passionate volunteers.

My family and I are long-time Madison natives, east-side residents, and proud empty nesters. Our twins are both college seniors, and our youngest is a college freshman! It’s a privilege to see them transitioning and becoming adults. I look forward to this new journey, new job, and new possibilities.


Sonia was recently honored with a North Star Award from the Northside Planning Council for the work she’s done not only at Mendota Elementary but for her commitment and dedication to the north side. Congratulations, Sonia!
