Sophie Stockum (they/she)
Sophie Stockum is a cherished member of the community and serves the organization as a new member of the Board of Directors and as a Communications Specialist.
They first learned about Ananda Seva in 2013 through Dharmalaya’s permaculture gardens and were drawn into the community by attending a yoga retreat. As the Communications Specialist, Sophie develops and implements outreach strategies, manages social media accounts, designs graphics, and assists with web management.
Sophie previously worked as Program Manager for the arts nonprofit Sidewalk Detroit, where they learned many of the community outreach strategies they use today. Sophie feels connected to Ananda Seva’s non-dogmatic and practical approach to yoga as a means to ultimately serve one’s community. Outside of Ananda Seva, Sophie works as an independent contractor for other private clients through Taproot Communications.
