Sofiya Pasternack

Sofiya Pasternack is a psychotherapist, an author, and a prolific baker. She grew up surrounded by goats, and as an adult pets the neighbor's goats through the fence even though she probably shouldn't. When she’s not working at the hospital, she can be found enjoying Utah’s wild places, teaching her kids to make challah, and defending nice dragons.
