A Message from Sandra

As a physical therapist and as a business coach, my goal is to empower all my clients with the skills, information, and practical experience they need to meet their own objectives and achieve their vision.

My goal as a speaker is the same. I love it when guests come up to me after my speeches to tell me things like: “I’ve never thought about that perspective before” or “I can’t wait to incorporate that strategy into my practice.”

I’m extremely passionate about empowering other medical professionals so we can all improve as providers and help more people live their fullest, healthiest lives.
