Sandra Wagner, who is not now, nor ever has been an aardvark, hails from Chicago, Illinois. While some claim that Chicago is a hotbed of aardvark activity, she has seen none of it.
Having spent her entire career in the software industry, she finds creative outlet in writing fiction, art, theatre, and music.
In 2007, in her mid 50’s, she successfully made the transition from male to female on the job at a large financial institution and helped them write guidelines for transition for transsexuals and gender variant individuals.
She is married to her husband, June, and lives with her extended family. She helps raise her two granddaughters who do not find it odd at all that grandma Sandy used to be a boy, and actually think it’s kind of special.
She has created and presented a workshop called “Transgender 101 - Trans Information for the Non-Trans Community” where she originally came up with the aardvark metaphor.
