Sophia started life in Levittown, PA where she played all sorts of sports. She attended Mercer County Community College playing college softball. While attending MCCC, Sophia was part of a veterinary assistant externship which she completed here at Princeton Animal Hospital. She knew she “wanted to join this amazing, kind-hearted team.” And she did - in September 2021.
Sophia currently has one dog named Oscar. Oscar is a senior dog whose DNA profile is American Staffordshire Terrier, Bulldog, Chihuahua and Tibetan Spaniel Mix. Oscar was found outside behind a trash can - hence her name Oscar, after the Sesame Street character. Sophia credits Oscar with giving her the extra confidence she needed to pursue her dream of becoming a vet tech.
During Sophia’s free time she loves being outside enjoying nature. She enjoys hiking and discovering new places and spending time with her family and friends - and those friends include animals. She is also still a huge Philadelphia sports fan.
At work, Sophia enthusiastically soaks up new knowledge and skills. “My role at the practice currently is to do everything I possibly can to make the hospital run more smoothly - anything I can do to help out the team. I truly love my job!” And we truly love having her as part of our team!
