Often touted as a “Jane of All Trades,” Sandra was encouraged at a young age to follow her multiple passions of art, music, writing, and jurisprudence. But after a somewhat sketchy tour of duty in law school, she eventually threw out her original childhood aspirations of becoming the next singing, dancing lawyer.
Sandra describes herself to be a classy, mature woman, with a heart as big as all out doors, even the double kind that open by themselves in supermarkets. She is pro-choice, spiritually inclined but not conventionally religious, anti-dogmatic and nondoctrinaire, a headtripper without benefit of psychedelics, and a passionate but pathetic karaoke singer.
She is not in favor of the Standard American Diet or the death penalty, loves a good joke, is terrible at mysteries, and claims to be a very slow typist. Completely schooled in HTML, she doesn’t know a thing about MACs, and doesn’t want to learn. Incensed about sexual intolerance, Sandra couldn’t care less if someone wants to marry a turkey or a Chicklet™.
Visually, she appears harmless and has a misleadingly pleasant Merle Streep quality to her, but she’s got an inner Wolverine and doesn’t have much patience with narrow-minded people. She is unspeakably headstrong, willful, intelligent and opinionated, but always fair-minded and suffers fools gladly. She takes 100% responsibility for her actions and intentions, refuses the role of victim, is not easily intimidated, and laughs at herself more often than she should admit.
She is married to a wonderful man who does read her stuff but refuses to admit it.
In her spare time, Sandra also enjoys water polo, black tie galas, and owns a winery in northern Italy. Ok, no not really, but she does drive a fabulous, blue and silver, Smart ForTwo Cabriolet named KARTOON.
Likes: Airplanes, Hemingway, falling snow, martinis (made from only the finest vodka), sheepdogs, large reptiles and larger birds. A self-confessed addict of genealogy, spicy food, American Idol, Christmas decorations, puns, and mahjongg.
Dislikes: Microsoft Vista.
She does not look like her photograph.
