About Sandra

I have been a caregiver to my 92 year old mother, as well as others and currently live in a independent senior living apartment complex, even though I am not old enough to be here. As a college graduate in Special Education, I am a nurturer by nature and am compassionate, very patient and a great listener. I have taken pre-nursing classes and am a certified massage therapist. Being a massage therapist also brings an added touch to my abilities to bring comfort and care to my clients. I love people and brightening up their day. This is a very rewarding opportunity to be of service. I also have a dog, if a client is interested, who is very well behaved and loving. I think my biggest achievement is a tie between raising 3 amazing daughters as a single parent and going off to China to live for a year. It was a wonderful experience!
