Meet Our Team
Sophia Moikobu, Executive Director and Owner:
Sophia is the Executive Director and Owner of Visiting Angels of Renton. Ms. Moikobu purchased her Franchise in December 2006 and since then has successfully supported families in the Seattle and surrounding communities for over 15 years. She was born in East Africa and was a student of Social Work at the Prestigious University of Nairobi before emigrating to the United States in the mid-80s. When she purchased her Franchise, she brought with her a rich background ranging from a private caregiver to Network Administrator for one of the largest School districts in the nation. Her background truly makes her a people person. She enjoys meeting families and providing comfort in their most vulnerable time as they are faced with having to care for a loved one. Even though Ms. Moikobu enjoyed working in different fields of work, she always found herself thinking about the difference she made for the family friend whose wife was diagnosed with early onset dementia only in her 50s. She volunteered to help this family friend and found this to be very rewarding to her soul. When she ran into the opportunity to help more than one family at a time, she decided to purchase and run her own home care agency to make a difference in her community. To date, she has provided employment to hundreds of care providers and brought comfort to many families in their times of need. She is a mother to 3 wonderful sons and a little rescue dog named Prince Aries Cooper. In her spare time, Ms. Moikobu enjoys reading and traveling. She also enjoys providing guidance and financial assistance to her very large extended family members. Her dream is to someday return to her village and build a medical/community center to bring care to those that need it the most.
