Sandra worked many years at the Pontiac Community Hospital, retiring as the Paymaster, but her true passion was her community and helping others. Sandra proudly served as councillor for the Municipality of Shawville for several years before becoming its first female Mayor, serving 2 terms before retiring in fall of 2021 due to health reasons. Sandra was a long time Lionette, and member of Shawville United Church Women, Unit 6, as well as serving on many other committees and projects over the years.
