“I am proud to say that my family’s business of over 56 years, by association, has contributed to my real estate success,” he says. “Sonnichsen Transportation was well known in the Headingley/St. James/ Charleswood area as reliable, honest (and) hard-working and for providing a dependable service. I strive to live up to the reputation and standard of excellence established by my family’s company.”
Sonnichsen has also coached several levels of boys hockey and Provincial A girls softball.
“Giving back to the community is essential for local programs and the development of our youth,” he says. “To be able to have a positive impact on a child’s life and offer words of encouragement or nudge them along with their life decisions is a real privilege.”
