She has worked in the auction industry since graduating, joining the Russian Department at Bonhams in London as a Cataloguer in 2005. Head of Department from 2012-2014, Sophie has overseen many world auction records, selling Vasilii Polenov's 'He That is Without Sin' for £4,000,000, Alexander Volkov's 'Child Musicians' for £2,100,000 and Nicholas Roerich's 'Madonna Laboris' for £7,900,000, surpassing the previous record for the artist by over £5,000,000 and achieving the record price at the time for the most expensive painting ever sold in a Russian auction. Sophie was appointed to the UK Board in 2014 and now acts as a consultant specialist for the Department.
