Sandi has a love for reading and learning about new people, places, and things. She graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School in 1976 and Palm Beach Junior College in 1977. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education from the University of South Florida in 1979 and a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary in 2003.

The Bible verse that best describes her call to ministry is Isaiah 611:1. "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...".
