Hailing from South Florida, Sophia has always had a passion for books, earning a Masters of Science in Publishing from NYU. Prior to joining New Leaf, Sophia worked as a literary scout sourcing projects for international clients, and later moved into foreign rights and international sales where she rounded out her understanding of publishing as a global industry. She loves to read stories that were written for the kids who had to grow up too fast and books that redefine family, love, and madness. You can usually find Sophia and her dachshund Sunny in the kitchen or the craftroom making something Instagram-worthy. She is a Diet Coke enthusiast and champion axe thrower.
