Sophie Silverstone

Sophie earned a Marketing degree and dance minor from Loyola Marymount University in 2012. After taking some time after college to pursue professional figure skating, which took her through the United States and Mexico, at one point with a Mexican ice circus, Sophie returned home to Utah to set down some roots, and began working at CATALYST Magazine in 2014. Sophie can't really say which hat she hasn't worn at CATALYST besides editing. She is the distribution manager, an ad sales rep, a photographer, a writer, a party-planner, a fundraiser, a social media and website maintenance manager, the intern coordinator, and production manager (when John, Associate Publisher, is out of town).
