SOFIA GOMEZ VILLAFANE
I was born in Esquel, Chubut a small town in the Patagonia of Argentina. When I was 12 my family moved to USA and have stayed state side ever seen.
In my spare time I am mainly on my bicycle as I am pursuing the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Before I came to work at Ritual Chocolate, I was in Durango CO getting my bachelors degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Business Administration.
At Ritual Chocolate my official title is Admin Manager as I do a little bit of everything. I was lucky enough to start as a barista and them move to an office job, which has allowed me to understand all the parts of the business. I currently do some bookkeeping, HR management, managing new projects and helping with custom orders.
WHAT MADE YOU INTERESTED IN CHOCOLATE?: I have been working in the chocolate business for 7 years and it was not so much that I was interested in chocolate but more that the right job came along at the right time. Through my time at Ritual I have discovered what good, ethically source chocolate is, as well as how different chocolate from different origins can taste.
