Sophia is very excited to be a member of the WAAY 31 team and telling stories that impact the North Alabama community.
Previously, she worked as the Weekend Anchor in Roanoke, Va. During her time there, she covered national murder trials, President Trump's visits during the 2016 election, flooding and tornadoes hitting the Roanoke Valley. During Sophia’s time in Southwest Virginia, she volunteered with the American Cancer Society and Junior League of Roanoke Valley.

Sophia started her journalism career in the cold, but very friendly state of North Dakota. While reporting in Fargo, she was able to tell stories which impacted the community.

Sophia graduated with a B.S. in Broadcast and Digital Journalism from Syracuse University. She has two dogs and loves hiking, traveling, and volunteering her time to help others in the community.
