Sandra was born in Cuba and raised in Miami, Florida. She enjoys scuba diving during her time off and driving down to the Keys as often as possible. She also loves spending time with her family, friends, and her French bulldog.
A fan of East Coast staples—she is on the constant hunt for New York-style pizza and a good Philly cheesesteak in South Florida. Sandra lives by the philosophy that there is almost nothing a good Cuban cafecito cannot fix.
Recently, she has built up quite a collection of vintage typewriters and runs the up-and-coming Instagram page @MiamiTypewriters.
