I started to work with Sophia in August . I called her because…I was at a crossroads. It felt like I was working, dancing, singing, acting, auditioning, everything I could; and was getting so close to some major opportunities, but wasn’t getting a JOB! I needed another point of view and some feedback about the things that I was doing right. I also needed encouragement. Sophia gave me great advice and some new ways of approaching this industry. I put her advice into motion and the result blew me away. In late October I booked my first Broadway show [,”HUGH JACKMAN BACK ON BROADWAY!”…I had written [her advice] in my planner that I took with me to the callback. I’m so thankful for her wisdom and encouragement.

Sophia Thomas was such an integral part of my premiere art showing. She was incredible at encouraging me as well as a great help in finding the space, promoting me to friends and colleagues of hers, participating in the set-up process, and being present throughout the entire event. I will definitely be using her expertise for my next showing. If you get a chance to work with her, do it!!!

Sophia is a wonderful actress. She is a true professional: skilled…with a convincing vulnerability…She is a giving soul on the set and in life.

Sophia, I am so grateful to you for your artistic nurturing and introducing me to two of the most amazing make-up and photographic artists I’ve ever met!!! We had an incredible shoot this morning, and the untouched photos I saw in the camera were magical! Thank You…….

One of the things that I admire so much about Sophia is her willingness to help. I was new to the business and had mentioned to her that I wasn’t really sure how I was going to pursue my career. She listened to my fears and frustrations with genuine concern and was able to steer me in the right direction. Sophia is a performer herself, so she was able to tell me exactly what worked for her and what didn’t. I am grateful for the advice she gave and I still use it today.

Artists are creative people and the business side of things does not always come easily. Sophia has coached me in both the creative and the business aspects of the theatre/TV/film industires, and has helped me to marry the two. Confidence is key in a business where there is so much rejection and in working with Sophia, I have learned how to be the best I can be, with grace, and to accept the many challenges we face as artists, without backing down. Sometimes we can’t always see clearly when in the thick of things and Sophia’s clear-headed view, and positive reinforcements allowed me to get through a difficult business move that I might otherwise have not made. And it paid off.

As long as I’ve known [Sophia, she’s] been looking for ways to create a forum where actors can find support and community. I always think that eventually that thing that a person is clearly built to do, is the thing they will absolutely do. [Sophia as]…a career coach is…a perfect match of a personality finding a forum for what it does best. [Her]…personality…is nurturing, fostering, and…[helps]…others figure [out] exactly what[‘s]…really gonna make them happy…. [She’s]…always helped me dig through…long enough to start to see clearly and figure out what’s most important. I always leave my time spent with [her] feeling renewed and invigorated and hopeful again…[she helps] bring some order to the chaos, some clarity to that which overwhelms….[Sophia,] what you’ve given me over the years has been immeasurable.
