Sandra Sobieraj Westfall

Sandra Sobieraj Westfall is an award-winning national journalist who, as a six-year White House correspondent for The Associated Press, began covering Hillary Rodham Clinton in January 1997 - and hasn't stopped yet. A former legislative assistant and speechwriter for her hometown congresswoman, New York's Louise Slaughter, Sandra left the AP for People Magazine in 2003. There, she interviewed then-Senator Clinton and then-Secretary Clinton and, finally, Presidential-Nominee Clinton more than a dozen times.

Sandra is renowned in political and media circles for her off-stage portraits of headline-makers from Clinton to Michelle and Barack Obama, Laura and George W. Bush, the McCain family, Elizabeth Edwards and more. Sandra's high-stakes election night reporting - taking readers backstage for Al Gore's dramatic decision in 2000 to trigger a recount, and then into the Obama family's hotel suite as they watched America elect her first African-American president - made her a two-time winner of the White House Correspondents' Association Merriman-Smith Award for Excellence in Presidential Reporting under deadline pressure. A native of Rochester, New York, Sandra earned her bachelor's degree in politics and Latin American Studies from Princeton University, followed by a Master's in journalism from Stanford. She is married to a former Navy and Secret Service bomb tech, with whom she has a teen-aged son and two Shih-tzus named Scrabble and Dobby.
