Sindy Sands has been an SLP since 1978 and currently works in the Evergreen Public Schools in Vancouver, WA. She is a STEP Participant, and member of the Special Interest Group 16 coordinating committee.

Why Does Sindy participate in the ASHA Community? 

“It is inspiring to see the caliber of folks who are in my chosen profession. It gives me a broader perspective of my field and helps me to understand what is happening nationwide. I get questions answered. I get to give to the profession from my knowledge and experience. I have been an SLP since 1978 and I have seen a lot…I get new perspectives from others' practices. It unifies us.”
