Dear friends of Bethlehem Centre

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Bethlehem Centre Society, it is my pleasure to introduce Sophia Sorensen, BA, MA, RCC, as our new Director.  

Sophia brings with her an exceptional career covering the corporate world of big business, non-profits, and spiritual organizations as well as working with the First Nations Health Authority as a clinical counsellor.  In addition, she possesses a Bachelor of Business Administration degree as well as a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. She and her husband are residents in Nanaimo.

In her application letter Sophia stated, “At this point in my career, I feel the greatest investment of my time is in a roll of service to the community and using my twenty years of business expertise and ten years of counselling practice in an environment which values and supports spiritual development in a well-managed, robust and positive context.”

Please join us in a very warm welcome to Sophia Sorensen
