She continued her education with a Masters in Physical Therapy from the University of Central Arkansas. She is an Ergonomic Assessment Specialist, Essential Functions Evaluator, Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist, and Certified Clinical Instructor. Sandy’s original plan was to become a pharmacist or engineer, but she was drawn to the functional component of physical therapy, a field she was introduced to through injuries she sustained in high school and college athletics.

Sandy has been instrumental in the growth and development of TRS Wellness. She particularly enjoys the proactive approach to healthcare that her team is able to deliver. In addition to her role as Director of Corporate and Industrial Wellness, she also contributes to our wellness offerings through the assessment and early management of musculoskeletal dysfunctions in an on-site Industrial Wellness facility. Sandy has combined her experiences from both the outpatient orthopaedic and sports medicine settings to develop a program that not only empowers the industrial athlete but also engages the industrial athlete. By being proactive, versus reactive, in her efforts, she works to reduce the incidence of workplace injuries through her expertise in human performance, physical demands job analysis, defined essential job demand descriptions, fit for duty assessments, ergonomic intervention, stay at work programs and performance training enhancement. Her passion is being able to assess and analyze symptoms or problems, determine a cause and ultimately provide a solution to the problem via treatment, education, adaptation and motivation.

Sandy joined the TRS Wellness team in 2012, and has over 25 years of healthcare experience. She is married to her high school sweetheart and has two children, McKenzie and Trey, who are twins. Since her family enjoys things coming in two’s, they also have 2 cats, 2 dogs, and 4 fish. In her free time, she enjoys playing sports, hiking on Petit Jean Mountain with her family, watching movies, and going to football, basketball and softball games. Sandy is a long-time supporter of Special Olympics and is active in her church and children’s school.
