Favorite Memory:

Sandi & I met through our local guild, “The Storytellers of Old Tampa Bay”, a guild she co-founded and where she was a regular participant, always there to help new storytellers with their craft. She was so multi-talented and had such a beautiful engaging spirit. She was a master storyteller and ventriloquist and singer, who whose shows blended puppets, stories and songs into an enchanting program that educated and entertained audiences locally and across America.

What place(s) did you know Sandi?

St. Petersburg, FL

Mantras in Life:

Sandi was known for so much, but I felt that one of her special gifts was was her gift to the children of western Native American communities she drove to year after year, sharing stories of joy, hope, and the magic of life.
