Recipient of the 2013 UN Women National Committee Canada Recognition Award for her contribution to human rights, she was recently named as an influencer for the Deliver for Good campaign of Women Deliver.

As a mother, Sophie’s outdoorsy and energetic personality translates into lots of active family time in nature practicing a multitude of sports. She was honoured as the 100th member of Nature Canada’s Women for Nature initiative for her support for nature and the outdoors and continues to be committed to sharing her passion for nature with Canadians as Honourary Guide for Families for Parks Canada.

She completed another degree at the École de radio et de télévision Promédia in Montreal. After her studies, she worked in sales and advertising before becoming a television and radio reporter.

Her intrinsic curiosity and her willingness to explore spirituality motivated Sophie to study hatha yoga and attain her certification. She has also completed her kundalini yoga teacher certification and offers classes on a volunteer basis at a public school close to her home.
