Meet our educators:
Sophia joined Bluegrass Greensource in 2019 as an Americorps Environmental Educator. Her degree was recently obtained from the University of Kentucky with a major in Environmental & Sustainability Studies and a minor in International Relations. Sophia has over three years of experience working in an elementary school with ages ranging K-5. Her involvement working with a non-profit during her free time intersected with speaking with her students and created an enjoyment to help mold young minds towards sustainable practices. Sophia's specialization includes: community outreach, creative collaboration, social justice organization, the global commons, and interpersonal communications. During her free time, you will usually find her planning ingredients to bring to her friends' weekly homemade vegan dinner, making memories with her significant other, or catching up with her grandma on a phone call.
