Sandra is a qualified, registered Civil Marriage and Funeral Celebrant and is Founder and Director of Soulful Celebrations located in her home town of Melbourne. She has trained as an End of Life Consultant and has completed her training as a Reiki practitioner. 

She is a member of the International College of Celebrancy Association and a volunteer with Jewish Care Victoria.

Sandra is a keen walker and animal lover and a proud mum, step mum and step grandmother, grateful to be raising her family in the culturally rich diverse country that is Australia. She is in awe of our Indigenous peoples, their ancient spiritual practices and connection to their land.

The daughter of a Holocaust survivor and mother of premmie twins who died at birth, Sandra has had an affinity with loss and grief all her life and has tremendous empathy for those grappling with end of life experiences.

Sandra feels immensely privileged to care for grieving families at a time when they are extremely vulnerable, and is a firm believer that a truly authentic funeral ceremony that accommodates choice has tremendous power to heal.

However, for almost 10 years in her capacity as a Funeral Celebrant she has discovered that most people are unaware of the many choices available to them.

Sandra has engaged in discussions with Aged and Palliative Care professionals and organised workshops, discussing the myriad of choices available at end of life. 

She is passionate about End of Life education amongst affiliated professionals and the broader community and believes that by gently breaking the taboo that is “talking about death” we may just begin to be more at ease with the language of death and dying and all it can teach us about dying and living well.

She is excited to be an NDAN Committee member and grateful to have the opportunity to work together with those who share her passion for death literacy.
