Sophie Yendole

Director of Story Curation

Sophie is a community builder, poet and parent. Several years as an Outreach worker in VSB Adult Education have prepared her well for her role as a PLAN Mentor. She brings a broad and inclusive awareness of assets and resources in the Lower Mainland. Trained in the performing arts at UBC, Sophie also works in the dance and theatre communities in Vancouver. Her focus in this work is to envision and develop story around people and ideas. She is excited to continue to apply these ideas in identifying and celebrating stories and gifts with the people at the centre of the networks she connects for.

As the mother of two, Sophie understands the important role that parents play in caring and planning for her family’s future. She is passionate about supporting self-expression as a form of personal development. She also knows that  each of us hold rich gifts to be shared and hopes to encourage this kind of exploration with those she has the privilege to meet and collaborate with as a PLAN Mentor.
