BIO:

Sandra Zichermann, Ph.D., is a Real MOM Expert who routinely hides from her 3 kids, pokes fun at her husband and avoids cooking and cleaning at all costs. She relishes Netflix, friendships and always keeps it real. She is the founder of The MOM Rant: a social community of 19k+ MOMS worldwide who rant and rave freely. 

 

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.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:

Sandra’s on-screen credits include 2019 appearances on: CHCH, CTV, hosting Taste of the Danforth, Bathurst Street Fest and Buskerfest.

Sandra’s teaching accolades include 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. Sandra was the Chief Media Expert on Plastic Makes Perfect (2010) and Pop Culture Expert and Fan on ­­­­­­­­­­­The 50th Anniversary of Coronation Street a CBC Produced Documentary (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.

GOAL:

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 social community of ranting and raving MOMS. Sandra has BIG goals for 2020 including speaking gigs, tv appearances and all-around fun times. Sandra’s lifelong dream is to sit on a panel style TV show (eg., The View, The Social) and to ultimately, have her own talk show one day!
