For nearly a decade, I played one of the best-known roles in Broadway history: Christine Daaé in The Phantom of the Opera.
I’ll always love musical theater, and I still perform in concerts nationwide, but my new roles allow me to use my voice in ways I find even more rewarding. As a speaker, author, and workshop facilitator, I get to empower others to know who they are beyond the roles they play, to choose love over fear, and to live an unmasked life that is fueled by meaning, joy, and purpose.
Unmasking what matters
Sandra’s presentation goes far above and beyond a traditional keynote. Her program delivers a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
In this one-of-a-kind combination of songs and stories, Sandra pulls back the curtain on her legendary career and reveals pivotal experiences and epiphanies that led to enduringly meaningful success on and off the stage. Her provocative stories, insights, and exercises help audiences unmask their own perspectives about life, work, love, loss, courage, perseverance, and what matters most.

- Make a decision NOW to take the necessary steps to get where you want to go
