Sophie is a pet lover and has written for The Spruce Pets since 2021. Naturally, Sophie’s industry expertise makes her the go-to for friends who need skin-care recommendations. Those who know her best, however, can attest to Sophie’s ravishing, often all-consuming penchant for all things crafting and DIY. To date, she has accumulated two Cricut die-cutter machines, every hue of vinyl imaginable, and more ModPodge than she knows what to do with. Sophie’s boyfriend, a witness to her ceaseless crafting, recently relinquished half of his home-office for glitter and glue-gun storage. Currently, Sophie is in the midst of creating some semblance of a “city-sized” craft room in their NYC apartment.


Sophie graduated from Carnegie Mellon University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Creative and Professional Writing.
