Her mother was the most positive and important influence on her life. Because of her mother’s mentoring, she learned that there were more important values than wealth, and that people should always remain true to themselves, regardless of their environment and the hardships they faced in their lives.
Sandy managed the daily operations of county government as chief clerk for the Cumberland County Commissioners. As a mentor and advocate for all her employees, her compassion and professionalism made her the most respected woman in county government. She listened and communicated with her staff, she was a leader who gave the most to her team and expected the best. Her personality and laughter was infectious and she was loved by all who met and worked with her. Sandy was a strong advocate of women, and mentored many who became well-respected leaders. As liaison for the Cumberland County Commission for Women, she provided insight, focus and direction. She was pivotal in increasing the number of members on the Commission.

She was a member of International City/County Management Association (ICMA), West Shore Chamber of Commerce, County Commissioners Association of PA(CCAP) and the liaison to the Cumberland County Commission for Women.
Sandy loved life, her family and her friends. She was funny, charming and a classic beauty. Chocolate was her main food group and cookies followed as a close second. When asked what song would be her life’s anthem, she said Lee Ann Womack’s “I Hope You Dance.” Sandy, we hope you are dancing. You will be loved forever.
