Sander was one of the first managers to join the Heritage House team, and has been with us before the doors officially opened.


He was born and raised in the Netherlands and went to the University of Utrecht where he earned a BA in Dutch language and Literature, later using those skills as a teacher. His dreams of moving to a place with a kinder climate brought him to Santa Barbara where he has been for 20 years. He is a very proud father to two daughters. Eva, who is on her way to Berkeley after traveling the world for a year, and Hannah, who is excelling at San Marcos High School. If Sander is not at Heritage House putting things to right, then you are sure to find him on the soccer field. He has coached his daughters’ soccer teams for the last twelve years and now serves on the AYSO board of directors. He continues to officiate at games and is a huge advocate of the sport.


Sander can be reached at 879.5906.
