Lookin’ at U – Sonja Cox

picture disc.Quick, think of five things others should know about you.

That’s the theme behind a series in UNMC Today called “Lookin’ at U.”

Each Thursday, we will randomly select a medical center employee or student to feature.

This week, we feature Sonja Cox, M.D./Ph.D. program associate in the College of Medicine.

Here, in her own words, are five fun facts about Sonja:

Sonja Cox

  • When I was young (many moons ago), I showed quarter horses and then later got my daughter involved. Her first horse show was at age 2 1/2!

  • I just got a 250cc scooter! I don’t know how to maneuver it yet. In fact, we spent most of Tuesday night putting it together, but I’m looking forward to the fun. My husband — the love of my life — has a 400cc scooter, so now we can each cruise on our own scooter.

  • If you know me at all, you know that I love to camp. Although we don’t rough it much … we have a fifth wheel and we even manage to take along our satellite TV and computers so we have the Internet.

  • I have three great little dogs — all Shih Tzus. Max and Benny are full brothers from the same litter. Last year, we added Ruby, who is still very much a puppy and constantly bugs Max (he’s such a saint).

  • And last, but most importantly, I have two wonderful granddaughters. Hadley says the most amazing and funny things … what a kick! Our newest addition, just three weeks old, is Brinley and she is such a joy. I always tell my daughter that my job as a grandparent is to spoil and I believe I do it quite well!
