Sandy Nering

The Sanibel Historical Village and Museum welcomes Sandy Nering as a new Volunteer Coordinator. Sandy has been with the Village one day a week for the past few years while she also worked at the Sanibel Recreation Center. Accepting her new position with the village, she will be at the SHMV three days a week while Volunteer Coordinator Jan Symroski will continue in the role two days a week.


Sandy and her husband, Doug, moved from Indiana to Sanibel five years ago. She enjoyed a variety of teaching positions, writing grants and chartering a public Spanish Immersion School. She and her husband also owned and operated some business ventures. Both of these past experiences facilitate Sandy’s unique skill set – besides, she’s just a sunny personality. Sandy said, “I enjoy waking up to Sanibel history every morning that I’m at the Village. When you hear the school bell ring in the morning, it’s probably me having more fun!”


Visit Sandy at the Sanibel Historical Museum & Village. The Village is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Anyone interested in volunteering at the Village can contact Sandy directly at Volcoord@sanibelmuseum.org or (239) 472-1856.

Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Sanibel Historical Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access to eight of the nine buildings. Admission is FREE for SHMV members and $15 for non-members (adults ages 18 years and up).  For more information, call 472-4648 during museum hours or visit www.sanibelmuseum.org.
