What is in My Bag



bio Profile

Sandy, like a fine wine, has only gotten more beautiful in her 30 years at KP. 

Sandy was a stay-at-home mom until 1987, the year Kalman & Pabst Photo Group opened. As the story goes:

Studio co-founder, Bob Pabst, paid the bills the first month. 
Co-founder, Jan Kalman, paid the bills the second month.
Then they made the decision to hire Sandy the third month.

Sandy still says she has the best job in the world. Her colleagues would say that Sandy is like a surrogate mother, an inspiration for what a great marriage looks like, and as the office manager, the glue that holds KP together. We hope she never retires!

Q&A With Sandy Petrovich

What do you do during your "5 to 9" (after work)?

My husband Rich and I enjoy watching the Indians, Browns, and Cavs, win or lose. We attend as many of our grandchildren’s sporting events and concerts as we can. I love to crochet, a skill I learned from my Gramma. I make baptism blankets for church as well as quirky characters made without using a pattern. My favorite is a potato.

What is your quirkiest trait?

I worry too much. I am worrying about this answer as I type it.

What inspires you?

The sun inspires me. On a sunny day, I can clean the house in a flash. If it's overcast, I just want to read a book.

What's your guilty pleasure?

A Starbuck frappuccino...every night.

What would be your superhero power?

Driving a car. 

Worst fashion choice?

A fried, curly perm.

I'm Really Proud Of

- I am most proud of my three daughters and seven grandchildren.
- Climbing out of the canyon in Mesa Verde in 2010 was quite an accomplishment for me (I am pretty lazy). I wasn’t sure I could do it.
- Seeing a photo of me in a Little Tikes set featured in Time magazine was awesome. I was also proud to be featured in a Lois Wyse book.
