Director of Tourism
Sandra Book joined the Carmel Chamber initially as a volunteer in the Visitor Center, and loving the work she did as a volunteer, she eventually became part of the staff as the Visitor Center Assistant in September of 2015. Before becoming a volunteer at the Visitor Center, Sandra spent 10 years as a Real Estate Broker in the San Jose, Silicon Valley area. Earlier her career was in sales, holding positions as a National Sales Manager and Sales Representative for various U.S. manufacturers. Sandra lives in Carmel-by-the-Sea, which was a longtime dream of hers, and enjoys the fruits of living in paradise, an urban style of living, but in a quaint little hamlet. Her love of Carmel makes her perfect for her job at the Visitor Center, helping tourists and locals experience all that Carmel has to offer and connecting them with local businesses. Sandra still finds time to volunteer for various events: Alzheimer’s Association, Carmel International Film Festival, Pebble Beach Food and Wine and the Sunset Center Gala.
