Welcome to The MOM Rant!

About Me


Creator and Admin of The MOM Rant (Because We Can)
Mom to 3 kids; wife; daughter; sister; friend.

Sandra Zichermann wears many fabulous hats: she is the founder of The MOM Rant (Because We Can), a proud mother of three rugrats (who drive her crazy) and the official pooper picker-upper, bum wiper, boo boo kisser, moving target for her boys plus twinkle, twinkle little star entertainer, for her daughter. Sandra is a busy mom who knows what it’s like to feel overwhelmed, especially by her husband and life in general. Sandra needed a place to vent, a safe space where she could say what’s on her mind and vent freely without being judged. Hence, The MOM Rant (Because We Can) was born.

Prior to having 18 babies, Sandra was considered a pop culture expert, media personality, and radio/web host widely applauded for her charismatic communication style, wit and finger on the pulse of today’s youth. Sandra had an illustrious career in education beginning with a BA in Political Science and Communication Studies from York University, a post-graduate in Corporate Communications and an MA in Communication Studies all from York University.

She then went on to complete a Doctorate in Sociology and Equity Studies at the University of Toronto/OISE. Although it took Sandra 8 years to complete, it’s one of Sandra’s greatest accomplishments.

Sandra’s teaching accolades include 2009/2010 nominations to Canada’s Top 40 Under 40 and TV Ontario’s Best Lecturer Competition. As a pop culture pundit, Sandra’s opinions have appeared on CBC Radio One, in The National Post, and on Toronto One TV, while her on-screen credits include Chief Media Expert on Plastic Makes Perfect (Fall 2010) and Pop Culture Expert and Fan on ­­­­­­­­­­­The 50th Anniversary of Coronation Street a CBC Produced Documentary (December 2010). Additionally, she has been a Judge on the Gemini Nominated Hit TV Show Last Bride Standing, and as a $100,000 winner on Are You Smarter Than a Canadian Fifth Grader. Sandra thrived for years in her role as XM Radio host on Sirius/XM with The Sandra Zee Show which aired on Channel 153, Laugh Attack.

Sandra’s plan is to ultimately take over the world with her mom minions 😈 , but until such time, she plans to build up The MOM Rant to the largest group of ranting MOMS on Facebook. For further information about the group or to speak with Sandra, contact her at: sandra@momrant.com.
