Founder & President

Born in Texas and raised in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, Sandra grew up with great parents that instilled in her and her two brothers the attitude to give back and help others. Growing up, she had diverse and interesting conversations with elderly people that her mother would take in and provide for on a regular basis.

She completed her MBA at Universidad Autonoma de Guadalajara, becoming a professor of Accounting and Taxation at her Alma Mater. After marrying Henny, she moved to San Diego, and raised their newly blended family as a loving Mom to her son Edgar and Stepmom to his three sons.

A CPA with over 30 years of experience, she had a successful career in Corporate America after completing a second MBA. Then, as her sons grew up, she found an outlet to unleash her boundless energy and organizational abilities in fundraising for charity organizations. With like-minded friends, Sandra founded the Tea3 Foundation. With her “Can Do” attitude and positive outlook on life, Sandra feels blessed to be able to make a difference within the community she loves.
