As the current HR Director, Sonja Noble is working do all she can to employ the best and the brightest to work with our students here at the Oakland Military Institute. She is quick to say that she is also dedicated to working closely with faculty and staff to establish long-lasting relationships built on trust and professionalism. Ms. Noble is a St. Mary’s college graduate who decided to study Human Resource Management in graduate school when she was instantly intrigued at the thought of managing employees in a school. That involves hiring, firing, training, and motivating employees. This is something that truly interested her. The idea of contributing behind the scenes at a school to integrate, recruit, staff, provide benefits and compensation, and maintain compliance felt like something she had to do. Sonja has been a member of the Oakland Military Institute family since its inaugural year in 2001. For 17 years, Sonja has been dedicated to helping OMI move forward providing quality education, free to all California residents.
