Meet Sandra

Sandra joined the DSS team as the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services Coordinator in March of 2015. Before then, she worked as a sign language interpreter for Cypress College and Rio Hondo College. She completed the Interpreter Training Program at El Camino College in Torrance and transferred to Cal State University, Northridge where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Deaf Studies. She is committed to enhancing services for DHH students and professional development opportunities for interpreters. She collaborates with students, interpreters, staff, and other DHH service professionals to achieve their goals.

Sandra also devotes a lot of her time to her family. Every year, she takes trips with friends and family to see the Dodgers and Raiders play in different states across the country. She is fascinated with exotic food and likes to try new restaurants. Her favorite pastime is watching movies, especially dramas. She enjoys running and someday would like to run a full marathon while her kids cheer her on.
