Pets: four loveable cats - Giovanni, Skittles, Sadie, and Sushi.
Born and raised in the valley, Sophia had always had a strong passion for animals of all shapes and sizes, but particularly livestock. She showed in 4H for ten years and in FFA for three years with projects ranging from rabbits, dairy cattle, dairy goats, poultry, cavies, and horticulture. Sophia remains very active in the rabbit show world as a licensed registrar for the American Rabbit Breeders Association, and has specialized in raising colored Holland Lops with conformation since 2002. Outside of rabbits and work, she trains her horses in Monroe with an emphasis on natural horsemanship and all around riding with a dressage focus.
