About

Sandra grew up learning how to design and make her own clothes and studied music from the age of ten.

On leaving school at fifteen years old, she obtained a trainee position at an award-winning fashion house in Melbourne, Australia.  After a two-year visit back to the UK, Sandra returned to Australia but this time to Sydney, NSW, where she studied the first year of a Fashion Certificate course.

However, her career path subtly diverted to the entertainment industry after she left her fashion studies and obtained work as an International Telephonist at the GPO in Sydney. She resumed her music studies, joined a local drama group, and attended dance classes in contemporary and jazz ballet.

Her work at the GPO sparked her interest in radio broadcasting and after returning to the UK in 1980, Sandra took up acting before becoming involved in radio broadcasting and journalism.

Sandra has worked as a background artist on numerous major films, television productions, and some commercials. These include:

The Rotter’s Club
The Nation’s Health
Who Dares Wins

Octopussy
Pavlova
The Pink Panther

A Woman of Substance
The Secret Garden
Gossip

She has also performed with various amateur and semi-professional theatrical companies such as:

The Wimbledon Y workshops
The Children’s Drama Workshop (street theatre productions)
The Ellerslie Theatre Company (T.I.E. production of Alice in Wonderland)
City Literary Institute production of Cyrano de Bergerac.

Her other work has included participation in various local London festivals such as:

Actress at The Greenwich Festival,
Assistant Volunteer’s Manager, Radio Presenter/Journalist for the 2012 Sydenham Festival
Artiste Liaison Officer and Steward for M.O. L’s 2012 Regent Street Festival
Seasonal DJ/Entertainment roles in the UK and abroad
and Parent chaperone on ITV’s production of Night and Day

Sandra has worked as a DJ/presenter at:

The Nelson Hospital Radio
Whipp’s Cross Hospital Radio
Radio St Helier

Sandra is returning to work in the media, entertainment, and film industries after working as a PA and Legal PA/Secretary whilst raising her children and studying for a university degree. 

Since the summer of 2022, she has turned her hand to freelance photography and is a presenter on Ridge Radio.

She also undertakes proofreading and copyediting work.
