our team

While most organizations are structured so that there are only a few leaders, we recognize that everyone is a leader and work together to co-create our future.

Sophia believes wholeheartedly in shared leadership.

We are thrilled to have a team of associates, board members, partners and volunteers who co-lead efforts to fulfill the mission and vision of Sophia.

Meet our Sophia associates:

Our associates are truly scholars of servant leadership and have dedicated themselves to serving others through Sophia’s mission and a vision of caring communities.

Christa Williams

Executive Director

“What I love about servant leadership is that it brings out the best in people, organizations and communities.”




Samantha King

Operations Coordinator

“Being a servant leader empowers you to impact others, and in doing so, see the impact in your own life.”
