Sophia graduated from Saint Louis University in 2020 with her Bachelor’s in Exercise Science and Doctorate in Physical Therapy. She spent her time in St. Louis volunteering at the pro-bono PT clinic run by SLU PT students and late-night runs to Ted Drewes (the best frozen custard in the world) with her friends! She was assigned a school pediatric rotation where she was exposed to early intervention, and the experience didn’t last nearly long enough!
She fell in love with the dedication and collaboration of the health care team, as well as the kids’ determination and enthusiasm that made every day rewarding. Her fun fact is that she has voluntary nystagmus, meaning she can “vibrate” her eyes really fast!
