Sandra joined the Wellpark team in her role as programme leader of the Massage Therapy faculty in 2017. This follows a diverse career in both the health industry and tertiary education. Originally from Germany, limited approaches of physiotherapy saw her off to the shores of New Zealand to expand her qualifications in Complementary Medicine, including nutrition and herbal medicine. She has been active in the NZ massage industry since her arrival in 2004, and is amazed about the skill set and expertise found amongst massage therapists. It has been a privilege for her to make contributions to a growing health profession and to pass on her enthusiasm and knowledge about the human body to students. She is currently undertaking postgraduate studies in the field of education.
