Sandra Moss is the mother of two sons and the grandmother of two granddaughters. She was born in South Los Angeles, and is a fifteen year resident of Compton, California.
Sandra completed her primary and secondary education in the Lynwood Unified School District. She has earned an Associate of Arts degree in Business Economics, a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a concentration in Counseling and Interviewing, and received a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from National University in October 2015.
As a child, Sandra realized that she had an instinctive ability to lead. She would organize the neighborhood children to teach them how to read and memorize biblical passages. She has served as a Parent Teacher Association (PTA) President for three schools; she has served as Secretary and a member of three School Site Counsels. She has served three years on the Student Attendance Review Team (SART) and the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB). She has worked on numerous committees with school administrators to reduce truancy and suspensions. She is very active in the community and has served as Secretary, Assistant President and she is the seated President of her block club. In 2007, Sandra founded the “Rites of Passage” mentoring program for boys between the ages of 14 to 24. She has worked on Mayor Aja Brown’s Community Task Force (Compton, Ca) and continues to serve in the community in various capacities. She has held key leadership role in her church for the past seventeen years.
She began her career with the Los Angeles County Probation Department twenty-two years ago (1993). For the past fifteen years she has worked in more than six units within the Department. Sandra’s energetic personality, positive outlook, ability to motivate and her “can do” attitude cause her to constantly be chosen to provide leadership, training and mentoring to her co-workers.
Sandra has taught hundreds of Juvenile Detention Officers and Deputy Probation Officers as an Adjunct Professor for more than ten years at West Los Angeles College. She has provided probation supervision and preventive services at more than twenty-six elementary, middle and high school campuses. She has received multiple “employee of the year” awards, and in February 2015, State Senator Holly J. Mitchell recognized Sandra for her outstanding community service.
