FACT Welcomes Sonni Bendetson!

FACT is pleased to formally introduce Sonni Bendetson as the new Director of Adult and Transition Programs!

Sonni brings to FACT her passion for creating innovative services that empower young adults with special needs to pursue their personal, academic, and employment goals. Sonni earned her B.A. in Child Studies and Human Development at Tufts University, and her M.A. in Special Education at Vanderbilt University, where she focused on transition and employment for adults with special needs. Sonni has helped adults with disabilities secure jobs in a wide range of industries, including tech startups, law firms, restaurants and coffee shops, a gourmet market, a global industrial real estate development firm, Gap Inc. headquarters, an international design and consulting firm, a Kaiser Permanente hospital, and several popular retailers.
A Boston native, Sonni escaped the cold Northeast winters and lived in San Francisco and Nashville before settling in Los Angeles. Sonni first discovered her passion for working with individuals with developmental disabilities through volunteering with peers with autism as a child, and she has been actively involved in the field ever since. Sonni is also a foodie, yogi, travel enthusiast, and devoted cat mom.
Sonni is looking forward to getting to know our special community. Please feel free to reach out to her anytime with questions or suggestions, or to grab a cup of coffee!
