Sophia Sepp, LMSW, MPH, is a graduate of the dual MSW and MPH program at New Mexico State University (NMSU). Prior to moving to the NM borderlands, she received a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service with a focus on international politics at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She has practice experience working with immigrant serving organizations in the border region as well as with the NM child welfare system. Her research interests include understanding the complex intersections of immigration, child welfare system, and child wellbeing issues, particularly from a cross-disciplinary lens that incorporates both social work and public health perspectives. She currently serves as a Program Manager in the School of Social Work at NMSU, supporting grant-funded research and training development around improving the relevance and access of social services for immigrant families with young children in the New Mexico borderlands. She also provides support to program evaluation projects of NMSU’s Crimson Research in the Public Health Sciences Department.


Sophia also works with the Center on Immigration and Child Welfare, a national peer membership organization that strives to improve programs and policies for immigrant children and families involved in the child welfare system. She supports research, practice, and policy-related work to increase equity and service access for children in immigrant families, especially those who touch state child welfare systems.
