A psychologist specializing in child psychopathology, Sophie graduated from the University Rene Descartes La Sorbonne in Paris. She taught psychology and patient relations to nursing students, animated groups for the French ministry of safe driving, and exercised her profession by working with children with deep affective and social needs.
