Sophie Guarasci worked in the world of fashion and finance before becoming

a licensed veterinary tech. She works at the Marine Mammal Center, the

nation’s foremost marine mammal hospital located just north of San

Francisco. Sophie oversees the clinical and surgical treatment and

husbandry of seals, sea lions, and sea otters. It’s her dream job, even

though there are times she has to make difficult decisions about the

treatment of severely ill animals. Sophie believes that people wherever

they live should care about these marine animals as they tell us much about

what is going on out there in their home the ocean, which is tied to human

health. And for her, every time the Center is able to release an animal

back into the ocean, Sophie feels hope that she is making a difference.
