After 15 years of working for two Fortune 10 companies in Canada (managing 50 and 100 million-dollar projects) she was on track to achieving tremendous corporate success in her professional career, when a change of fate and personal crisis forced her to reconsider her life’s path.

This fall Sandra is excited to launch her Business Development Mastermind for a select few heart-centered, inspiring women who are ready to make a change and build the business of their dreams.
