Sophia Sorboro

Ohio Partner Biologist

Sophia graduated from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Environmental and Conservation Biology and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies. After graduating college, Sophia completed two conservation-focused years of service with AmeriCorps and then worked as a Watershed Coordinator for a Soil Water Conservation District. Through these roles, Sophia provided technical assistance, conservation planning support, and environmental education and outreach to urban and rural communities across Summit, Tuscarawas, and Columbiana counties. As a beginning farmer herself, she understands the importance of balancing ecology with agriculture, and has experienced first-hand how pollinator habitat can help to improve soil, water, and wildlife conservation within workinglands. As Pollinator Partnership’s Ohio Partner Biologist, Sophia assists traditional, small, specialty, urban, and other producers across eastern Ohio with establishing pollinator friendly habitat by providing Farm Bill application and conservation planning support. She is also documenting wildlife habitat success stories and creating educational content to interpret and promote conservation practices that benefit pollinators and other wildlife. In her free time, Sophia enjoys gardening, trying to train her goats, and visiting bogs.
