Sandie Tillotson

Sandra N. Tillotson

Founder, Senior Vice President

 

Sandie Tillotson’s heart has always been big enough to hold her boldest dreams. For her, there is no glass ceiling…opportunity is endless. She was a young wife, mother, and recent college graduate teaching public school when she mastered the art of network marketing. It wasn’t long after that Sandie knew she would never be content working for someone else, so she plunged head-and-heart first into establishing her own company. “When we began Nu Skin our little trio of founders had the audacity to tag it international because our vision from the start was not only to sell innovative products globally, but to improve lives. People and products…in that order.”  Four decades later, with a multi-billion dollar enterprise standing behind her, Sandie is still motivated by love—love for the work she does, for the superior products Nu Skin International creates, and especially love for the people who thrive through the opportunities the company provides.​

 

A popular public speaker the world over, Sandie’s exceptional leadership has won her countless awards and worldwide recognition. Her name frequents lists of “women to watch.” Working Woman Magazine named her one of the top 10 female business owners in the U.S. Feminine Fortunes Magazine awarded her the honor of being one of just 50 “Women of the New Millennium” alongside the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Sandra Day O’Connor. ​

 

Sandie’s philanthropic endeavors are what she is most proud of. As a trustee for the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation, Sandie is a team leader in improving the lives of the world’s children, keeping them free from disease, illiteracy, and poverty. She also serves as vice president of Seacology, an international environmental non-profit organization that focuses on saving endangered species, habitats and cultures of islands throughout the world. She has also used her success to preserve American’s last forestry frontier in the wilds of Oregon. Wherever Sandie goes, she goes motivated by love.​

 

Whether she’s riding a horse, scuba diving, cattle wrangling, fishing the ocean like she did as a girl with her father,  or exploring the world’s most majestic peaks with friends, Sandie’s greatest joy is found in spending time with her family. She is the mother of three daughters and a son. She is “Tutu” (grandmother in Hawaiian) to ten grandchildren with whom she creates experiences that turn into memories, like decorating holiday cookies, planting a garden, or venturing through the glaciers of Alaska, Sandie’s favorite company is family.​

 

Sandie could have retired from work years ago. Instead, she has chosen to continue to contribute to Nu Skin Enterprises, empowering and inspiring others to realize their boldest dreams, and she does this with her standard innovation and integrity intact because through all the growth and wonder, Sandie’s internal motivation has never altered. She is motivated by love, the foundation of not only her business endeavors, but her life.​
