Sandra’s fascination with travel emerged during her 15 years abroad as an expat in the Middle East, Latin America and Europe. Before finding her way to Go Learn, Sandra completed her undergraduate degree in Latin American Studies at Brigham Young University and worked administratively in programs supporting low-income populations, immigrants and refugees.

Sandra is passionate about education and feels at home working for a program that provides a unique and educational travel experience.
It was everything I'd hoped for - the incredible local color, my fellow travelers and of course Christoph and Giuliana who were friends as much as guides. It really was a one-of-a-kind experience.
