Sophia Rovira

  • CEO 
  • Masters of Research in Mathematical Education & Leadership
  • Post Graduate Certificate in Education
  • BSc Honors in Mathematics

Sophia’s personality is a true reflection of her approach to business: results-driven, client focused, caring, passionate and inspiring. She has 12 years of leadership experience working in education & healthcare, where she led leadership programs across the UK for leaders in schools, was a Deputy Principal and in the most recent years has led the team at Freedom Sports Medicine.

Jesse came into Sophia and Ross’s world 1.5 years ago and it changed her in the most profound and magnificent way.

She realised when Jesse was quite young just how tough it is to be a parent: juggling the needs of your children whilst being a modern day “working mum” with your work or business responsibilities; trying to maintain a happy and connected relationship with your partner; and then, of course, there is the relationship with yourself. That comes last and is the one that is so often sacrificed so you can successfully be everything to everyone else.

It was becoming increasingly obvious just how unhealthy we were becoming as a society and the increasing demands on working mothers.

Inspired by her own personal health struggles with chronic neck/back pain Sophia began to realise how disconnected people are from their bodies. This relationship was reflected with so many of our clients who were disconnected from their bodies, stressed, anxious and facing complex and challenging health issues – physically and mentally, where sport and fitness was their only outlet.

Combining her personal and professional experiences entwined with Ross Kinsella’s passion for Sports and his world championship ironman background they created a vision for a family focused Sports Medicine Centre that empowers all the family at all stages of their lives to live the active, healthy and happy life they deserve.

Sophia believes that a team who work collaboratively in unity, where EVERY client is noticed, can facilitate real and lasting health and life transformations for the whole family and the wider community. Sophia works tirelessly to build and unite their team of health leaders at Freedom Sports Medicine.

Outside of work Sophia’s favourite thing to do is be with her beloved partner Ross, beautiful son Jesse and 2 dogs George and Suki. She also enjoys yoga, strength training, hiking and travelling. She also loves good food!
