Sophia grew up on a mixed cropping and sheep farm on Yorta Yorta country in northern Victoria. Her background is in sustainable food systems and agroecology and she has experience in various aspects of the food system: organic retail and fresh produce management, farmers’ markets’ stallholder coordination and management, and most recently working at an organic goat dairy and farmhouse cheesemaking business in Central Victoria.
Sophia is part of the Open Road team building and delivering our innovative collaborative logistics solution. Primarily focused on the Central Victorian region, she supports new producers to join the service and works closely with partner organisations who make Open Road possible. She has also worked as one of two Regional Food Activation Coordinators supporting Regional Food Activation Officers and other Open Food Network projects to empower community food enterprises to transform their local food systems.
She now lives on Dja Dja Wurrung country in the Central Highlands area of Victoria; in her spare time she tends to 5 Anglo Nubian goats who graze on private and public land around her home. Sophia is also a sucker for volunteer boards and committees where there’s an opportunity to help strengthen local food systems or opportunities for young farmers!
