Sandi Bradley is a second generation native Californian whose move to Virginia ten years ago turned a lifelong interest in world history into a passion for early American history. Seeing the places which had before only existed in history books brought it all alive. Since then she has participated in three history fellowships through the University of Mary Washington, visited many significant sites in our early history, and attended lectures on events and individuals from our early years. She currently works in a Virginia public school teaching language arts and her favorite subject, history. When not working she spends time with her extended family including a toddler niece and nephew, doing crafts, playing with her pets, attending church, and reading - history books of course.
