What you may not know about Sandee…
She is all about family, volunteering, and going to hot spots — literally!
“My time away from work is spent mainly with my family (husband and two daughters). We are proud Salinas High School parents and supporters of their athletic programs.
“I also spend a lot of time volunteering in the community with my family. My daughters were raised to see the blessings in their lives and that others are not as fortunate. It’s all about making someone’s day a little brighter.
“We also love the HEAT! We spend at least a week on vacation each year somewhere HOT…our favorite spot is Palm Springs in July — can you say heat in the 100s?!”
