My name is Sandra.  As your Higher Education Academic & Career Advisor my aspiration is to inspire you to reach your higher education goals.  As a non-traditional student myself, I have had to push through many obstacles and believe that you can too.

Hobbies: Spending my free time with my three grown children whenever I can get away, and playing with my Rottweilers (my other babies).

Please feel welcome to contact me so that I may assist you in reaching your goals!
