Welcome Sophia Nicholas!

Sophia Beets

Can’t be beet! Sophia in her garden.

The SLCgreen team is excited to welcome Sophia Nicholas to the Division of Sustainability as Communications Manager.

Sophia, a Salt Lake City native, brings to our office extensive experience in communications, event planning, social media, and a deep knowledge of the environmental issues affecting our community.

She previously worked at the local environmental non-profit HEAL Utah, first as its Development Director and then Associate Director. In those roles, she helped shape the organization’s campaigns, strategic focus, and messaging over the last eight years– in addition to her role as lead fundraiser. Over that time, HEAL’s supporter list quadrupled, fundraising income doubled, and their mission expanded to include more issues affecting public health and the environment. Check out her outgoing interview on the HEAL Utah podcast here.

Prior to HEAL, Sophia graduated with a degree in political science from Wellesley College, followed by a stint traveling and working abroad.

As the Sustainability Division transitions to a full City Department under Mayor Biskupski, Sophia looks forward to helping us develop new partnerships, increase participation in key programs, and highlight the many ways Salt Lake City can continue to lead on sustainability initiatives.

Welcome Sophia!
