Meet the GSB Administrators
Please meet our team of highly qualified and motivated administrators.
As head of administration, Sonja is in charge of GSB’s administrative management. She has implemented and administered school management programs and established policies and procedures for operations at GSB, including admissions, transportation, safety, after-school and camps. Born and raised in Salzburg, Austria, Sonja earned an associate’s degree in international business and a master’s degree in education from the University of Salzburg. She was a French teacher in middle and high schools in Austria, France, and Brooklyn, New York, for 10 years before joining GSB as an administrator in 2015.
I am an African American who was born and raised in Grenada, West Indies. As a child, I always wanted to be a teacher, but as I grew older my passion shifted to wanting to become a nurse to care for the sick, regardless of color, race or creed.
I graduated from the Grenada School of Nursing in 2006 as a Registered Nurse. In that same year, I started working in the Pediatric Unit at the Grenada Hospital. As my passion continued to grow, I went back to school and graduated in 2010 as a Certified Midwife.
In 2016, I migrated to Bermuda where I worked in the hospital’s pediatric unit. In December of 2020, I moved to the U.S. permanently with my husband and kids. Shortly after, I attended Derby University where I obtained my Bachelor’s in Nursing.
While not at work, I enjoy spending time with family, cooking, and baking.
I am glad to be able to continue to grow and contribute to the GBS community!
Amelie’s enthusiasm for the world of sports and exercise led her to the German Sport University in Cologne, where she graduated with a BA in Sports Management and Communications.
After working for a sport-sponsoring company in media evaluation, interning at a German Bundesliga (football league) soccer team in management and marketing and a Division-1 college sports department in Pennsylvania, she found my way back to school—at GSB.
Now, supporting GSB’s students and community on their educational journey, she is pleased to have found such a strong, caring community. At GSB for four years, she’s been able to wear many hats, including administrative assistant, sports coordinator, and director of admissions.

Above all, Yvonne Thomas is a people person. Throughout her work life, she has held many roles, primarily in customer service. Prior to starting at GSB in 2020, she managed the front desk at Eastern Athletic – just a few floors up from GSB’s first location! When she’s not at GSB, Yvonne enjoys singing and dancing (well. . .sometimes even while she’s at GSB). She is the frontwoman of her band The Next, which often plays at Sylvana’s in Harlem. She loves being part of the GSB team, and looks forward to greeting students at the door during drop off.
