During her time at MSM, she worked with renowned Musical Theatre artists, such as: Boyd Gaines, Randy Graff, Luis Perez, Liza Gennaro, Robin Morse, and many others. Sofia has performed professionally for Quisisana Resort, the Edinburgh International Festival, and a handful of new works. Some of her favorite roles include: Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Doria in Smile, Texas in Cabaret, and Fiona in Shrek the Musical. Sofia's creativity has allowed her to write and direct a musical theatre piece for Saint Andrew's School of Fine Arts' Creative Arts Camp in 2021 and 2022.
She is an avid traveler and language learner. She studied the Spanish Language in Spain and Costa Rica, fulfilling a life-long goal of becoming conversationally fluent in Spanish. In 2022, Sofia spent time solo-traveling to 17 different European countries, learning a great deal about European art, history, and politics in the process. At the moment, she is spending a portion of her free time learning German.
