Sandy Sampias has been in the financial services industry for the past 15 years. She attended Illinois College for three years and graduated from the University of Illinois at Springfield with a bachelor's degree in accounting. She worked for the State of Illinois in Accounting and Auditing positions for a few years, then decided to stay home and raise her children. As her children were growing, she formulated a business plan. She studied for all of the necessary licenses and registrations, and in 1997, jumped in feet first and never looked back. Sandy and her husband of 30 years, Bill, have three children- Dr. Jessica Sampias Craig of Georgetown, Kirstyn Sampias of Chicago, and Wesley Sampias who is currently attending Illinois College. In her "spare" time, Sandy enjoys making quilts, taking photographs, cooking, and she loves to travel!
