Upon moving to Kentucky, Sandy and her family traded suburbia for farm life, which they love! Sandy has two children, Austin who graduated from Centre College in 2017 and will study at University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law and Madison who is a rising sophomore at Centre College.

Sandy is very grateful to have the opportunity to rejoin an academic community and to serve the Commonwealth of Kentucky!
