Story Teller at HUMAN
An avid morning runner, you can find Sophia on most Saturdays sprinting…from one sale to the next. Humor aside, Sophia discovered her love of running during her sophomore year of high school and has since then run three 10Ks, four half marathons, and one 26.2-mile dash of insanity, an experience she describes as both invigorating and excruciating. During her downtime, Sophia enjoys trying new foods and visiting LA’s wide variety of contemporary art galleries and museums.
