Sandra is a certified acquisition professional with over 18 years in purchasing, contracting and supply chain operational experience. Sandra has strategically planned, sourced, evaluated, awarded and managed hundreds of millions of dollars in construction, environmental, dredging, utilities, MR&O, A/E, and professional support services. She has analyzed medical supply chains, developing actions as a result of analysis results, metrics, quality assurance/compliance, and operating practices; integrating and aligning acquisition, delivery, and management of supplies, equipment, and services to ensure the successful delivery of patient care.
Sandra founded Cannabis Business Opportunities in late 2016 when she realized, after speaking with her brother, a Master Grower in Colorado, that the only way they would locate the supplies or services needed on the farm was through word of mouth. At that time there was no concept of the supply chain, procurement nor its impact. Brokers were the ones making connections between sellers and buyers. Many brokers are not held to ethical considerations, and because of this, they cannot offer any more value than making the connection. This industry requires strategic procurement to properly ensure that the transaction is not only compliant but fair and reasonable to both parties.
Since her entry into the industry, Sandra has met with several companies to explain the importance of procurement and supply chain management in its operations and has co-founded two companies, a research farm in Arkansas and a supply chain technology company (ERP).
Sandra is passionate about guiding and teaching companies that are entering the hemp or recreational markets to properly plan and establish their respective supply chains.
