Sonia Cook-Broen

Fractional Technologist Officer

Sonia has a sixth sense when it comes to understanding broken processes. A systematic issue creates a burden felt by all members of a team and outward to the company. Whatever the issue, there are times when a trusted advisor is needed to assess the landscape and make recommendations on a path forward. 

Sonia’s other big passion is unlocking the latent potential of teams stuck in inertia. This process involves deeply understanding the culture of a firm, the management organization, the mission statement and the individual contributors. The successful outcome of unlocking potential is a complete mindshift for organizations and one that is necessary to be a top competitor in the marketplace of tomorrow.

Sonia is also someone that you can really talk with and collaborate on different projects and ideas.


I love the fact that she is not just looking to "do things the way that they've always been done" but go beyond, see the bigger picture and look to continue to evolve and grow

Senior Manager, Software Engineering at Salesforce

Sonia is a natural leader and will often spark meaningful conversation that is beneficial to the project or task at hand. As an engineer she is sharp, detail oriented, consistent, and thorough in her work. During our code reviews she always provides great feedback and is able to communicate that feedback tactfully. Sonia is easy to learn from and I'm indeed a better developer having worked with her for the last year and a half.

Senior Software Developer at Litify

Creative Technology in The Age of AI

I became part of the AcornOak community after my corporate career as a software engineer and engineering manager reached its apex following the 2023 layoffs. 


This unplanned pause forced me to consider my path and the next steps I would take, which led to founding my startup, TheTechMargin, and joining the community of thought leaders that comprise AcornOak.
