Sandi spent years in retail management before changing careers. She then taught marketing and entrepreneurship for 12 years, but owning a business was what she really wanted to do. After visiting a studio in California, she came home, wrote a business plan, and started her first PYOP studio in San Antonio in 2001. In 2014 a studio in New Braunfels was for sale and she purchased that one. Along the way, Sandi served on the CCSA’s Board of Directors and served as the President of CCSA. In 2020, Sandi sold her San Antonio studio to “semi-retire”. Sandi continues to operate Clay Casa New Braunfels and also works as an Independent Consultant for Mayco.
