Before Sandra Westdahl moved to the United States, she worked as a youth reporter for a local newspaper in her native Sweden. That’s when she fell in love with everything journalism has to offer. And she never looked back.
Sandra graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s in Broadcast Journalism in May 2012. Before joining AZPM as a Production Technician, she freelanced as a producer, videographer and editor in Tucson. While in school, Sandra gained broadcast experience as an intern at KVOA. She was also selected to work as a video journalist for The New York Times Student Journalism Institute. As a result of her dedication to journalism, she was honored with the Excellence in Broadcast Journalism Award, Arizona Cat’s Eye Award for superior work and Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Achievement in Journalism from the University of Arizona. Sandra says that she is thrilled to be a part of the production team AZPM.
Sandra served as a Production Technician at AZPM for two years. In June of 2015 she became a videographer/editor.
