Originally from the United Kingdom, Sophie made Switzerland her new home in the 1990s. After beginning her writing career walking the United Nations beat for Kyodo News, she soon became fascinated with the art of watchmaking, and she decided to follow her passion.

Sophie’s entrée into the watch industry was with the Geneva-based Roger Dubuis, first as a market coordinator, then as the liaison between the manufacture's Swiss and American branches. After Roger Dubuis, she became managing editor for the world’s leading watch industry trade B2B publication, Europa Star Magazine, and is the co-founder of The Watch Pages.
