Sandi Clinton joined our Board of Directors in January of 2022. She moved to the San Lorenzo Valley from Aptos with her husband and daughter in 2014, and she immediately knew they had found their true home and the sense of belonging and community they had been looking for. She feels deeply grateful every day for the splendor and resilience of this beautiful valley and its people.
Sandi is a Bay Area native and has worked as an emergency services call-taker and dispatcher for 24 years. She served the past nine of those part-time and has focused most of her time and energy on parenting, family, caregiving, volunteer work, and self-care. She enjoys traveling, making art, baking, and spending time with loved ones, including her two dogs and three cats, at her home in Ben Lomond. One of her favorite activities recently has been volunteering in her daughter’s classes by supporting her teachers and creating art with the students. Being around our Valley’s brilliant, clever, optimistic, and hopeful young people and educators has been an infusion of positivity that has helped reset her perspective and focus.
Sandi has always been curious and passionate about social and political issues. She is fascinated by the interconnectedness of societal systems and structures and how they impact the challenges faced at local, regional, national, and global levels. She strives to learn and know more about them. Still, she often finds herself feeling overwhelmed by the magnitude of information and asking herself how she can act on it reasonably and sustainably. When she was invited to join the Board of the VWC, she felt she had been given the answer to that question. Being part of a team of local volunteers dedicated to preserving the San Lorenzo Valley and supporting our community in real, substantive ways was exactly the opportunity she was searching for. Sandi recently joined the VWC Education Committee and is excited to be part of the team that created the new Fred and Roberta McPherson Educational Grant for Teachers. Giving back to the educators she has been privileged to observe and support in recent years has been a rewarding and inspiring experience. Sandi looks forward to getting to know our team and finding creative ways to help our community in the future.
