Sonia Flores joined Dallas Seminary Foundation in August 2017. She grew up in Southern California and obtained her BS degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accounting from Azusa Pacific University. Her passion to work with non-profit organizations led her to Capin Crouse LLP, a national CPA firm whose focus is on non-profits. After graduation, she began working with the firm in the California office in 2001, moving to the Georgia office in 2003 before ending up in Texas in 2008 where she helped establish the Dallas/Fort Worth office. Her time with the firm gave her a wide breadth of non-profit accounting experience working with a variety of ministries from churches and mission-sending organizations to colleges and university as well as foundations. Her work with Capin Crouse led her to assignments all across the United States and even a few visits to locations such as Bolivia, Brazil, and Ecuador. She met her husband, Phillip, after her move to Texas and has two step-kids who live with them. She enjoys reading, musical theater productions, playing sports like basketball and volleyball, and spending time with family, whether it is in the pool or going out to the movies.
