All aboard! Sandra is the conductor who keeps this train on time and on the tracks. She was a highly trained classical Ballerina with the Canadian National Ballet. In her after professional dance career she has continued to teach dance as well as worked in management and leadership roles with a Fortune 500 company.

Sandra brings the sparkle to this Steam Train. Sandra has a true servant heart, and we are lucky to have her handle all our day to day office management. She is actively involved in all daily operations.

In her spare time she has become a master fiber artist and enjoys daily walks on BC’s ‘Wild Pacific Trail’ (#1 on Trip Advisor she says!) and right out-side our back door in Ucluelet, BC.
