She started SJ Savory Kitchen, a business that focuses on providing food recipes and tips to families. Since the start of the company, she has received praise from celebrity chefs such as: Rachel Ray, Carla Hall, and Sugar Chef! She has also received praise from Oscar winner, Octavia Spencer!

Sophia "SJ" Thomas gives back to the community. Her parents are military Veterans so she makes it a point to work with Veteran non-profits to send care-packages to military overseas. She also gives to charities such as Victoria's Voice and No Kid Hungry. Recently, Sophia collaborated with her sister to help raise over $150,000 in a fundraiser for Stand Up for Kids, a non-profit that focuses on helping homeless youth. Sophia "SJ Thomas has been awarded in the community for her leadership achievements. She was awarded the National "Girl of Merit" award in both 2018 and 2019.
