Spending a little time with me opens new windows in your creative process. I help you and your department use your gifts, skills, and tools to reach the peaks of your full potential.
Sandra Eisert has worked in a broad range of venues
I had the pleasure of working with Sandra via our SVP Fast Pitch program where she volunteered as our photography lead in 2017. Sandra jumped right in and was the consummate team player, going above and beyond with every project on her plate. Never once did Sandra utter “can’t”, instead she constantly offered multiple ideas and suggestions of alternatives to get us to the finish line.
Sandra’s vision helped bring to life our “Where Are They Now?” photo gallery featuring past program participants, where she served as lead designer and editor for the exhibit. Sandra also helped to prepare and train volunteer photographers and served as photo editor for our Fast Pitch marketing collateral.
Sandra is full of personality and was a joy to work with. Her passion for storytelling and visual arts is exceptional. I hope she joins us again this year!

Sandra Eisert's ability to originate complex concepts and successfully implement them is remarkable. In working with her at MSNBC.com, I quickly realized that she intuitively knows what is important to her audience and has a special ability to get things moving quickly -- especially when there is no previous path to follow or time to waste.
Sandra was the conceptual leader who established design standards for online news presentation before there were any. The founding design she created became the face of MSNBC.com, and the easily navigated site structure she created was its backbone. Her design continues to influence that site and many others today. Our readers wrote that they loved the way it looked and functioned.
Our news editors praised the design for easily meeting their editorial needs, and templates based on Sandra's page designs made it possible to increase their production tenfold. Always fair, considerate, patient, and highly professional, Sandra makes difficult tasks look effortless, inspiring those who work with her to produce their best.

Sandra Eisert was born to share stories. She should be your first call when any communication challenge comes up because she energizes every project with laser focus on getting the right information in the right form to the right place at the right time.
Sandra's brilliant communication skills percolate her story telling genius with an appropriate tone on everything she touches. Her calm demeanor makes each team member comfortable.
Her wise counsel and penetrating insight elevate each step in the process leading to a functional product built on solid principles while exceeding expectations.
She may seem quiet but she is also passionate about delivering the message.
I never heard her say anything that did not ring true and prove true.
One of the traits I love about Sandra is how she speaks her honest opinion unvarnished: never with bitterness and never with sugary zeal.

The process is unique to each organization
and it's the reason I get up in the morning
I first met Sandra Eisert many years ago when I was chair of a National Press Photographer's event in San Francisco and she was one of the featured speakers. She was a star, a brilliant inspirational speaker who was the highlight of the event.
Since then, I've stayed in touch with Sandra and followed her career with interest. Whether at newspapers, the White House, magazines or Microsoft, Sandra has earned great respect in demanding positions. Everyone who knows Sandra will tell you she's smart, creative, focused, versatile and multi-talented across a variety of platforms and disciplines.
I've certainly been impressed with all these traits. She's built a career of managing projects and juggling multiple demands. She's a strategic thinker, able to see further ahead than most others.
She brings out the best in her co-workers. In addition, she's been a pioneer as her field has changed and been great at showing others the way. I enthusiastically endorse Sandra.

Sandra is the most fascinating woman I have ever met. Her intuitive knowledge of visual arts and journalism is unmatched. She combines super intelligence with compassion and sensitivity in a rare mix.
Her experiences could fill volumes and I'm sure if someone tried, they could create a TV series from her life so far! She's energetic, happy, caring and always willing to do whatever it takes to succeed.

NPPA Award Winner in craft of Visual Journalism
Sandra Eisert has broken ground — often hard ground — her entire career. She was often the first woman, or even the first person, to hold the positions that she held. After graduating from Indiana University, she was hired as a picture editor at The Courier-Journal and The Louisville Times, widely credited as the first woman to be named picture editor at a major American newspaper. Her work there would earn her NPPA’s Newspaper Picture Editor of the Year award.
She was asked to become the first picture editor at the White House. Working with David Hume Kennerly and others in Gerald Ford’s administration, they broke from opaque Nixonian public relations practices with a deliberate shift to honest visual documentation of the American presidency. Eisert would later return to the White House as an additional picture editor during the presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama...Read More
