In 2015, Sandy became involved with the Navy League cadet program when her daughter joined. As the newly elected President for the 2023-2024 season, her priority is to ensure that their team consists of diverse professionals with various backgrounds to support and enhance the cadet program. In her role as President, Sandy provides administrative support to the Brantford Branch Office of Navy League of Canada. She has been a resident of Brantford for 18 years with a background in theatre management and office administration. Her experience with Mirvish Productions, Cineplex Odeon, and Rainbow Cinemas equipped her with the necessary skills to become an active volunteer in her community for over 30 years, participating in various events ranging from the Dragon Boat races, homelessness outreach, and the Toronto International Film Festival.
Her extensive volunteer service prior to her time with the cadet program, included serving as a volunteer Program Coordinator for the Food for Thought program at Christ the King school for 8 years, which delivered healthy and delicious snacks to all the school children. She was also a Beaver Scout leader with Scouts Canada for five years.
