  • Sophia's been a foodie since childhood — she grew up watching Food Network each night.
  • Over the past few years, Sophia has perfected her recipes for focaccia and olive oil cake.
  • In her free time, you can usually find Sophia scrolling through TikTok for some recipe inspiration.


Sophia began freelancing writing in 2019, and she started out by writing for Taste of Home with a focus on new food and drink announcements. Her first foray into food journalism was in college, where she and a friend reviewed three local noodle shops for the university's quarterly general interest magazine. Outside of writing about food, Sophia has experience in the industry working as a server in a noodle restaurant. When she's not writing for Mashed, Sophia is producing audio stories and podcasts.


Sophia graduated from Northwestern University in 2021 with a journalism degree.
