Sandra has an impressive educational and professional background. She first graduated with High Distinction with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Immediately following graduation she earned her Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Certificate. Only 5 years later she earned her second degree, a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA), again, with high honors.
Her career began as an auditor for Price Waterhouse in Washington DC. After relocating to Illinois, Sandra then shifted to corporate accounting and marketing for Caterpillar. Following another relocation she began a career at Pratt & Whitney where she fast tracked to a highly sought after controller position. During this time she was responsible for all financial activities of entities located in New York, Georgia, Connecticut and Israel. “This was an outstanding experience. I was able to manage people across the globe while controlling costs and negotiating sales contracts to surpass our corporate goals.”
For a short period Sandra left the corporate world to enjoy time at home with her three small children. During this time Sandra was actively involved in the Junior Women’s Club where she raised funds for and oversaw the installation of a new community park, as well as involvement in many smaller projects.
Sandra has always had a strong interest in real estate. During her years at home she took the opportunity to invest in properties in Florida which she continues to market and manage. She has taken an active role in the community to protect the property rights of owners such as herself. “I have stood before city councilmen on more than one occasion to protect the rights of owners of rental properties in Cocoa Beach. I met these challenges head on and lead 24 owners to a favorable ruling.”
As her children became school aged she decided to take her love of real estate to a new level and became a licensed real estate agent as well as a member of her local Board of Realtors. Her love for real property and smart investments make her the professional you want on your side. With a great understanding of the value of money, the ability to provide progressive analysis on your investment, and the ability to compile a smart marketing plan, Sandra will help you in making the best possible real estate decisions. Sandra will surprise you with her enthusiasm, professionalism and eagerness to assist you.
