Sophie grew up in Alexandria, a small town about an hour east of Ottawa. She gained a Bachelor of International Business degree from the Carleton University in Ottawa, where she majored in International Investments, Finance and Banking. As part of her Carleton degree Sophie spent a year at the University of Mannheim’s highly accredited business school, and its Summer Academy, in Germany. She then obtained a Master of Advanced International Studies from the Vienna School of International Studies.
Sophie is fluent in English, French and German, and currently works as the head of the Key Account Service Department for a multi-national corporation.

Sophie decided to open the WTM Ottawa Centre because “while reading FREEDOM it became glaringly obvious that the human condition was in fact the underlying problem in all of human affairs. The relief and sustenance from contributing to this world-saving project, knowing that there is hope for humanity and a time will come where children won’t have to resign to a life lived under the duress of the human condition and everyone will live free of that insecure existence is beyond words”.
Learning about Jeremy Griffith’s explanation of the human condition has been such an amazing journey and it just gets better and better along the way the more you let it into your life — everyone can transform their lives and simultaneously save the world!
Sophie is excited by how the biological explanation of the human condition allows all humans to immediately transform their lives and save the world. As Jeremy writes in Freedom Essay 15, the finding of the biological explanation of the human condition makes possible the immediate transformation of your and every other human’s life from a human-condition-stricken state to a human-condition-free life of unimaginable happiness and excitement.
As Sophie has said, “FREEDOM explains in an unbelievably compassionate and accountable way why we humans are the way we are and while doing so, it establishes the goodness of every human on this planet at a fundamental level. So for the first time in my life I could make sense of the world and human behaviour including my own.
On a personal level finally being able to compassionately understand all the turmoil occurring around me and the world as well as within myself has been incredibly relieving. What is far more relieving and exciting however is that with the true explanation of the human condition finally found we are at last equipped to solve all the world’s problems at its source and save the world.”
