I first met Sandra, a number of years ago when she, Eddie Adams, and I were on the faculty for a California photo workshop. Prior to that I knew her by reputation and she far exceeded what I had heard.

I found that she was intelligent, insightful and an articulate, perceptive commentator on visual images. As a newspaper picture editor, she not only maximized photographic impact and transformed her publications, but she also did outstanding work in advancing informational graphics.”

She lent her considerable expertise to the Department of Defense where she helped establish the DoD Public Web Program. As I said, she is smart and aggressive in pursuing visual and journalistic excellence.

I recommend her without reservation as a learned commentator on the value and impact of visuals on our increasingly visual society.  She is the best!
