Sophie celebrated five years as a volunteer with the Eye and Ear last Christmas.

She started volunteering for the hospital after attending the Boroondara volunteer expo, and has worked on the concierge desk every week since.

Sophie came to Australia from Hong Kong many years ago as she has a lot of family in Melbourne. She is now retired after a career in management and teaching, and decided to do volunteer work as she likes helping people. Sophie also volunteers for many other organisations including, The Alfred Hospital, Fareshare, City of Melbourne as an Ambassador, and a fellowship group at her church.

Sophie spends her spare time working with stained glass and keeps busy with church activities.
