Founder and Program Director
After working in the medical field for many years, Sandy decided to focus on her passion for working with people that have special needs. Sandy's own son, who has Down Syndrome, was her inspiration for creating Academy of Dreams. She now focuses solely on developing and running the program. When she does have free time, Sandy enjoys watching movies, reading books, playing sports and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
Mr. Jeff is a man of many hats, he starts his day with taking student to the gym for weigh-in and for a work out program. In the afternoon he takes the students to their job sites and works on their goals for job training. He has been with us since the school has opened. He uses his artistic skills in our themed projects (ask him about our dog sleds).
We love Mr. Jeff on our team
