Sandra Bunch

Senior Director, Marketing and Engagement

As senior director of marketing and engagement, Sandra works to lead and expand Bixal’s growing internal communications and marketing efforts. Working with a team of talented designers, digital content strategists and communications specialists, she applies her extensive expertise to help advance Bixal’s mission.

Sandra holds a B.S. in journalism and a certificate in African studies from Northwestern University and an M.A. in communication, culture and technology from Georgetown University. Originally from New Mexico and raised in Hawaii, she joined the Peace Corps as an agricultural extension volunteer in Segou, Mali, which jump-started her decades of work and travel throughout the African and Asia continents — more than 20 countries to date. She served two terms on the board of the National Peace Corps Association and currently serves on the board of the Small Business Association of International Companies (SBAIC). On the weekends, Sandra writes poetry and fiction, often hikes in the Shenandoah and loves gardening and harvesting wild herbs for her personal apothecary tinctures.
