She loves the alt-energy field because "it's wide open and cutting edge." As a child growing up in the Navajo Nation, Sandra was into math and science, questioning and figuring out things. Today, she employs her early interests, working with the U.S. Department of Energy and the Navajo Nation to find solutions for people.
