Sophie graduated with Honours in Bachelor of Medical Science and Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Tasmania and relocated to Melbourne for surgical training.
She completed her Specialist Plastic Surgeon training in 2010, and then travelled to Canada to train at Toronto’s major trauma centre, Sunnybrook Hospital. It is here that she further developed her surgical skills in rhinoplasty, adult craniofacial reconstruction and facial trauma surgery. She also took some time away from trauma to refine her skills in facial aesthetic surgery.
Sophie works at St Vincent’s and the Alfred Hospitals. At The Alfred she is involved with facial trauma surgery, orthognathics, and craniofacial reconstruction. At St Vincent’s her role is to reconstruct imperfections that are the result of cancer such as breast cancer, head and neck cancer and sarcoma using microsurgery.
Sophie is also an active volunteer with Interplast, a not-for-profit whose mission is to ‘repair bodies and rebuild lives’ by providing surgical services to patients as well as mentorship and teaching to local surgeons in areas of the Asia Pacific. She is part of the program based in Myanmar.
