PURPOSE & PASSION

At 18 years old she was tempted to allow her journey as a young woman battling insecurities, low self-esteem, toxic relationships, domestic violence, and depression to define the rest of her life. It wasn't until she was in her darkest moment that she realized she only had two options: settle or emerge. Sandy dared to harness the wisdom of her past wounds and apply them to the hope for her future.
The process of transforming from the insecure and fearful young woman that she was into the mother, grandmother, chaplain, businesswoman, and leader that she is, took dedication, discipline, resources, and spiritual growth.

has been successful at reaching and guiding hundreds of women to awaken healing, wholeness, and love for themselves. A call to action functionality that led to the establishment of this platform.
