Sandra has had masses of wonderful life experience that she shares with her clients. She often jokes that she has many Diplomas in all areas of life, the first being her Diploma in mischief and in leaving school early.
Sandra left school at aged 14 and started full time work in a newsagency in Redcliffe. She just couldn’t wait to get out of school as she struggled with the formal learning environment and just wanted to embrace life as a grown up. Her next Diploma was in property ownership when at age 16 her Dad handed her a rates notice. He told her it was her responsibility to pay it as she was now a property owner. She is still an avid property investor.
At 19 Sandra purchased her first small business; a pet shop in Cairns where she spent the next several years honing her small business skills. Sandra also built her first home at 19 where she gained many valuable lessons in life and money management at a very young age.
Sandra has owned several small businesses over the years and is well associated with the trials and tribulations of a small business ownership. She fully understands how it feels to be stuck and feeling like you don’t know what direction to take with your life or business.
She also knows what it is like to burn out, having done this herself masterfully a few years ago and had to bring herself back to excellent health and learn to live a more balanced life in the process.
Sandra is committed to a healthy, fit and empowered lifestyle and has been on a journey of discovery and self-development for many years. Always having a passion for fitness, and after practicing Pilates and yoga for over 15 years, Pilate’s instruction, coaching & training seemed like a natural choice to pursue after experiencing many positive life and physical benefits as a consequence of these learnings, trainings & disciplines.
Balancing the mind, body and soul connection is a way of life for her and she is committed to sharing this message with her clients in class instruction, one on one personal training & coaching as well as self-development training.
