ABOUT ME

A little about me.

“ I am always excited to learn new things. My hunger for knowledge never stops. ”

I'm Sandy Santos. My experience as both a creative and marketing professional has provided tremendous insight into emerging media and its value in the healthcare industry. Whether searching for the latest internet craze, debating the latest trends in industry blogs, or striking up a conversation with a stranger, I'm passionate about finding new ways to connect with people.

I'm a self-proclaimed “geek in disguise.” I spend my off time obsessing over tomorrow’s technology, embarking on culinary scavenger hunts to satisfy my inner foodie, and looking for that perfect photograph to share my journey with others.

“What my colleagues think of me...”

Untitled Document
Farini Farick
Legal Secretary, Singapore
I have known Sandy for over three (3) years, as a close friend and a colleague in BYCH Hot Yoga Studio.
I am a legal secretary in law firm, Messrs KSCGP Juris LLP. I also teach and practice hot yoga in BYCH Hot Yoga Studio. Sandy takes responsibility for her work, handling and attending to teachers and students never need to worry. Her ability to work efficiently under stressful conditions and nerve­wracking deadlines speaks volumes about her hard work, determination, and composed demeanor. Most importantly, Sandy displayed interest and exuberance for her work, and handled all her tasks with pleasure and competence.

I believe that her skills and experience make her an excellent candidate for Business Marketing Manager in your organization. She has a friendly personality and a capacity for hard work.

I wish her every success.
   
Lye Hoon Ong
Graphic Designer, Singapore
During her 3 years of working in the company, she did an excellent job in her position as a Manager in running the studio. She is extremely organized, able to work independently and able to effectively multi-task to ensure all projects are completed within schedule.

She is always willing to offer her assistance and had great rapport with the customers. She would be an asset to any employer and I recommend her for any endearvour she chooses to pursue.
   
Charlie Hubbard
Training Director
Employed as a training director with BYCH for four years now, I have worked with Sandy Santos for approximately two years. In that time Sandy has demonstrated an impressive work ethic. Sandy adapts creatively to novel situations handling customer service issues efficiently and gracefully. She consistently responds to demanding, unpredictable issues that arise with customers, settling issues to the satisfaction of both the studio director and the customers.

Sandy’s efforts at marketing have produced increased sales as well as a positive response from our customers. In addition to excellent interpersonal and marketing skills, Sandy can be detail oriented when needed also offering a high level of technical expertise with computer applications.
   

Joe Jo
Service Desk Manager
British Telecoms

Sandy was employed as a Service Desk Analyst at BT Frontline. Her responsibilities included providing technical assistance in analyzing, diagnosing, replicating and troubleshooting issues within the KK Hospital. In addition, she has also provided excellent documentation or knowledge base which helped our team to resolve issues in a fast and efficient manner.

She is a fast learner and even trained newly joined Service Desk Analyst in only a month of staying here with us.

In almost 4 months of working with her, she proved to be efficient, hard working and a positive employee.  I was very impressed with Sandy’s ability to complete all work assigned to her in a timely and professional manner.

I highly recommend Sandy for whatever position she may decide to pursue. She is the type of employee that anyone would enjoy to work with.
