Sandy grew up as an "Air Force brat" of a fighter pilot until her father retired and her family returned to settle down in his home town of Kershaw, SC. Sandy attended Winthrop College in Rock Hill, SC where she majored in psychology. Upon graduation, she went to work for the SC Department of Social Services where she worked for 10 years before deciding to go back to Winthrop University to pursue her Master of Education degree in Community Counseling. Sandy did her internship at the Lancaster office of the Catawba Community Mental Health Center and was promptly hired as soon as she earned her degree. She remained with Catawba for 17 years, starting out as an intensive case manager and working her way up to eventually becoming the Clinic Director. Always looking for new challenges, Sandy transferred to Santee-Wateree as the Sumter Clinic director in 2013. Sandy’s assignment here at Santee-Wateree has provided her with the opportunity to manage a Clinic twice the size of the one she managed in Lancaster. Sandy was also selected to participate in the DMH Mentoring and Succession Program and is also participating in a new partnership with Central Carolina Technical College to develop a Behavioral Intervention Team for the school. Sandy is now the Clinic Director of the Kershaw County MHC. (more)
