With two children to support as a single parent, Sandra Ramoutar faced a great deal of adversity in her years before studying at Cambridge College. Originally from Trinidad, Sandra had little formal education, but ample amounts of work experience. After being referred by a friend, Sandra applied to the College in 1986 with the hopes of applying her employment history and life experiences towards a formal degree. In short time, Sandra found herself excelling in the classroom. While studying for her Master’s in Education, she began taking courses outside of the college in floral design.

In 1988, Sandra graduated from Cambridge College with her Master’s in Education. Shortly after, she began teaching floral design courses at Massasoit Community College in Brockton, MA. Now living in Arizona, Sandra has been studying in the University of Arizona’s Master Gardener extension program, which seeks to train volunteers to educate their communities about environmentally responsible gardening practices. In addition, Sandra recently produced and hosted her own radio talk show, and looks to release a podcast series in the near future. Throughout her professional career, Sandra has consistently used the tools and lessons learned from her time spent in the Cambridge College classroom.
