Sophie Kaufman grew up in Brattleboro, Vermont where she discovered the New England Center for Circus Arts at a young age. She spent much of her childhood in the air, and enjoyed performing with NECCA each summer. Upon moving to Boston to attend Suffolk University, she continued her training at Esh Circus Arts, and began her journey as an instructor there.
Sophie completed a degree in Environmental Studies at Suffolk University in 2017. When she is not training, she enjoys biking, reading, and sending letters to friends and family.
Sophie credits circus with her ability to express herself openly and creatively, and believes that it is the best way in which to meet incredible and diverse people.
