Sofia joined Schuler in July 2020 after graduating from the University of Chicago with a BS in Biology and a minor in Environmental Studies. She is a first year STEM Coach at Lindblom Math and Science Academy. Before coming to Schuler, Sofia worked in several roles as a STEM educator and in animal care and research. She worked in zoos and aquariums, including four years taking care of octopuses!

Outside of Schuler, Sofia loves to spend time with her friends, play ultimate frisbee, dance, paint and visit the Lincoln Park Zoo.
