"Armed with 3 decades of experience and a reputation as a "training guru", Sandy is known as an outstanding learning & development professional who uses interactivity and humor - combined with vital information - to ensure students are educated, enriched, engaged, and empowered. She is equally comfortable creating custom seminars/webinars/workshops as she is with deploying existing information and data.
Sandy is passionate about teaching leaders how to help their teams grow and thrive by providing positive work environments. “I remember working for bosses who didn’t provide growth opportunities, making me feel disengaged and discouraged. I truly felt my hard work didn't matter. After seeing the untapped potential of other unmotivated co-workers, I had my AHA moment and found my calling.” Today Sandy helps businesses unleash and foster the talents of their teams through interactive learning & development, team building, and special events designed to unleash the limitless possibilities within their most important resource: the human capital of their employees.
Creating opportunities for engagement is truly her “superpower”. Sandy’s secret weapons are her hands on techniques including humor, role playing, quizzes, illustrative media, storytelling, and games with prizes to help teams grasp even the most mundane material. Research has conclusively shown that humor systematically activates the brain's dopamine reward system, essential for both goal-oriented motivation and long-term memory.
Her work gamut has included L&D, special events production, strategic audits, marketing, public relations, and employee engagement for blue chip corporations such as Comcast, Walt Disney World, Tribune Broadcasting, Macy’s New York, Red Apple Group NY, Burger King, NBC, and Tompkins Financial to non-profit organizations such as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, The National Women’s Hall of Fame, RESOLVE, and Denver Children’s Hospital plus many other companies across a wide variety of industries.
Sandy has also been a journalist for decades writing for local, regional, and national publications including The Miami Herald, The Sun-Sentinel, Family Circle Magazine, and The Democrat & Chronicle. Additionally, she has authored six popular children’s picture books about bullying, peer pressure, gratitude, imagination, and kindness.
Her personal philosophy is, “If someone doesn’t have a smile, give them one of yours!”
Sandy can help you figure out your team’s passion and ignite it to a roaring success."
