Hello! I’m Sophie.
I’m a dynamic and passionate journalist specialized in using technology to write thoughtful, exclusive and impactful stories with detail and care.
I’ve worked in some of the world’s top newsrooms producing award-winning multimedia content that has had a measurable impact in legislation, litigation, activism and my community. I am an experienced investigative data journalist and use an in-depth angle in everything I do.
Currently, I am the Congressional Committee Reporter for Fiscal Note CQ Roll Call. I am also a Data and Graphics Contributor at The Deseret News.
Most recently, I was the National Parks Reporter for The Spectrum and USA Today with the Report For America Initiative with the GroundTruth Project.
I received my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Boston University in 2020 with a concentration in data and investigations, as well as a minor in Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Studies. I earned the college's highest honor, the Blue Chip Award, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with six internships and as the managing editor of the school paper.
I am a devoted member of Investigative Reporters and Editors, attending and speaking at NICAR and IRE conferences since 2019. I practice solutions journalism and have a goal that each of my stories further accountability, have measurable impact and make people feel heard.
Growing up in Utah's Salt Lake Valley and Draper, my early passions were business, writing, research and government, leading me to journalism as the blend of them all. You can find me with my nose in a book, writing (for fun,) taking courses, clacking on my vintage typewriters, hammocking, petting my cat, listening to vinyl, crafting or in a yoga class.
If you have a tip, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 617-888-0900. I look forward to working with you to tell your story!
