Sophie Devincenti

Student Engagement Specialist

Sophie Devincenti (she/her) is the Student Engagement Specialist at the Gephardt Institute. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in May of 2022, where she majored in Educational Studies and Studio Art with a minor in Writing. During her time at WashU, she was a Howard Nemerov Writing Scholar, a T.R.U.T.H. facilitator, and an avid printmaker.

Her journey with the Gephardt Institute began as a 2021 Arts as Civic Engagement resident fellow at the Center of Creative Arts (COCA). As a studio artist new to the world of theatre, she designed educational and justice-oriented art making activities as well as implemented accessibility and trauma informed practices in the Front of House. A year later in June 2022, she joined the Institute, bringing her passions for building an equitable, communicative, and creative space with her.

She loves St. Louis for all its oddly shaped hidden gems and is happy to call it home. Reach out to her to nerd out about The Chef Show, illustration, mutual aid, and the intertidal zone.
