Adminstrator

Sandra's Montessori journey began as many, being a parent to a Montessori child.  Professionally, she started as Course Administrator at London's Maria Montessori Institute, then joined the inaugural team of the national body, the Montessori Australia Foundation in 2007.  She worked as Group Operations Manager & Events Manager for the Montessori Australia Foundation, the Australian Centre for Montessori Studies and the Montessori Children's Foundation before taking a break in 2014.  

After some time providing adminstrative services for the Catholic Schools Office, Diocese of Broken Bay, Sandra returned to Montessori Australia in January 2016 as Group Administor & Events Manager.  During this time she was also the Course Administrator for the Australian Centre for Montessori Studies.  In mid 2019, prior to the wind up of these organisations, Sandra left to work on a contract basis as Digital Administrator for the Association Montessori Internationale, a role she continues to date.

In September 2019, Sandra joined the new incarnation of Montessori Australia, working as Administator for the Montessori Australia Group where she continues to provide customer service, event management, marketing and publications, membership administration, and digital content support.  

Sandra has a background in administration, hospitality and IT, holding an Associate Diploma in Hospitality Management and AMI Montessori 3-6 Assistants Certificate.  She attended the International Montessori Congress in 2009 in Chennai, in 2013 in Portland and 2017 in Prague.
