Sophie brings a background of farming, soil science, agricultural policy, and event planning to her AmeriCorps position as the Education and Outreach Assistant. She grew up in the suburbs of Boston and got a taste for sustainable agriculture while living on a dairy farm in rural Vermont during her high school years. After obtaining her BA in Environmental Science at Scripps College in Southern California, Sophie moved back to Vermont to work as a part of the state's robust food system. She has worked three seasons as a vegetable farmer, published soil carbon storage research as a research student at the Kellogg Biological Station in Michigan, written agroecological policy briefings for the Pesticide Action Network, and coordinated educational programming for Smithereen Farm. Outside of work, Sophie loves to cook with local food, create fiber art, jump in cold bodies of water, and explore Vermont's woods.
