Throughout her early years, Sandy excelled in basketball as a 5-time AAU Maryland State Champion and McDonald’s All-American nominee but pursued lacrosse at the Division1 level, serving as captain her senior year. She helped young woman on Long Island sharpen their lacrosse skills and go on to receive athletic scholarships while earning her MBA in Marketing and graduating cum laude from Hofstra University. Post-grad, a 6-week “volun-touring” opportunity to teach English in Cambodia turned into a 16 month adventure where she backpacked Southeast Asia and worked in Australia. Now back in New York, her certifications include Schwinn Indoor Cycling, TRX, and AFAA personal training. She is a category 4 racer for Bicycle Roots p/b Hatchmap team and a member of CRCA. Her “mind over matter” attitude is what fuels her challenging classes and invites participants to step out of their comfort zones and ultimately achieve their goals.
