A geographer by training, Sandra understands the activities of Blue Ventures very well. Before joining the team, she worked as a consultant for the Coopération Française, conducting social studies in several villages in southwest Madagascar including Ifaty.
After four years at the University of Toliara, Sandra worked in the field for three years and co-authored several publications. However, after deciding to live in the city, she was directed towards management and administration, with some additional training in Antananarivo. She previously worked at Alliance Française, and managed two private schools.
She has an aptitude for languages (Malagasy, French, English) and has therefore been able to work on translating some of Blue Ventures' publications and reports. She also assists with purchasing orders in Toliara.
