Sophia is originally from Flemington, New Jersey but moved to Fort Myers to pursue her bachelor’s degree in biology at FGCU. She will be graduating in May with her BS in Biology with minors in Theatre and Interdisciplinary Studies. Sophia grew up on a farm, helping her grandparents with the chickens and rabbits ever since she could walk, this is where her love for animals began. Sophia officially began her career with animals when she was just 16 when she worked at a cat shelter in her hometown helping homeless cats find their forever families. Sophia is a pre-veterinary student whose passion for helping people and animals hasn’t changed since she was growing up! She has 1 rescue kitty at home named Malachite who likes to think he rules the roost. Outside of the clinic, Sophia enjoys dancing, gardening, and cooking, when she isn’t busy studying of course!
