Sophia is the Organizing Manager for the Protegete department of Conservation Conservation. She was raised in Alamosa, Colorado. Alamosa is a beautiful valley, surrounded by massive mountains, the Great Sand Dunes, and amazing climbing areas. At the same time, it is a desert facing serious water shortages. She grew up seeing firsthand the effects land and air have on people. Now she works to ensure the people affected by declining air or water quality have a seat at the table. When she is not working, she likes to visit local restaurants and play outside.
