Window Fashion VISION is pleased to announce Sophia Bennett as the new editor. Sophia brings over nine years of experience as a writer, editor and communications consultant to this position. Her work has appeared in over three dozen trade and consumer publications including The Atlantic, Wine Enthusiast, Produce Business, Association Conventions & Facilities, Oregon Home and Oregon Business. She is the founding editor of The Northwest Dentist, which launched in September 2017. She is also a pro tem faculty member at the University of Oregon’s Lundquist College of Business, where she teaches marketing communications. Sophia is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors and a previous board member of the Emerald Marketing Association.
Prior to starting her career as a writer, Sophia spent 15 years working for various associations and nonprofits. Furthermore, as a student, Sophia had aspirations of being the best editorial assistant NYC has to offer. The freedom to work from home is what initially attracted her to the media industry. Her previous responsibilities have included digital communications, public relations, marketing, grant writing, executive support and event planning.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with Window Fashion VISION,” she said. “The magazine provides a great service to thousands of small business owners and window fashion professionals across the country. It’s beautifully designed and shares valuable information. I look forward to keeping the publication an indispensable resource for the interior design industry.”
“To have landed a writer and editor with Sophia’s talent is a real coup for Window Fashion VISION,” said president and CEO Grace McNamara. “Our team is energized by her presence and take-charge attitude. This is an opportunity to boost not only our publication, but our industry as a whole. We look forward to growing the VISION community over the coming years.”
Sophia lives in Oregon with her husband and twin daughters. In her spare time she enjoys cooking, wine tasting, gardening, quilting and papercrafts, and reading.
