Sandra’s connection with animals started as a child. She was lucky enough to grow up with animals who taught her many lessons and gave her the gift of unconditional love. It was during her healing from the loss of her own beloved cat “Maz”, that brought her to the place of wanting to help others heal from their own losses.
Sandra is a Certified Pet Loss Specialist and Compassion Fatigue Educator who has spent the last 10 years helping both pet parents and those involved in the various aspects of Animal Rescue work deal with the loss of animals. Her passion is to help those working in the Animal Rescue world deal with both their own grief over what they see and also to learn how to make their own self-care a priority.
Sandra along with Ellie Freedman formed “PetLoss Partners”. PetLoss Partners was created to provide support and education for both grieving pet parents and Veterinary/Animal Care professionals.
