Sandra’s background is in data management and software design and development, specializing in SQL, VB and VBA.  Before joining EWAP, Sandra owned and operated a computer consulting firm in the USA for over 25 years. She also has a keen interest in both architecture and conservation, having purchased and renovated a 200-year-old building with her husband in a historic preservation district that had been abandoned for over a decade.
