Sandra Mitchell has been a Girl Scout Leader for 22 years. She began her journey as a Brownie leader when her oldest daughter decided she wanted to join. Since then, she has grown from leading a troop of 12 girls to a leading a neighborhood troop of 85 girls. In addition to leading a troop, she volunteers as Service Unit Director, Cookie Cupboard manager, First Aid CPR Instructor, and Outdoor Skills and PA Facilitator.
One of Sandra's favorite things about Girl Scouts is taking the girls camping, and she enjoys planning exciting activities for the girls to try, like tie-dye tag, cooking gypsie fling, dissecting owl poop, and spider hunting at night. Outside of Girl Scouts, Sandra's favorite past time is camping with her family.
