Sandra serves the community in a variety of ways, going well beyond her community liaison role at Norske Skog. She was instrumental in keeping the Friends of Frescati group alive through long years of negotiation leading to its official recognition by the council. She is also a supporter of the Friends of Lachlan River and an active member of Timber Communities Australia.
She organised easier access to St Peter's Church for frail and disabled people, and has much involvement with the St Brigid's School community. Sandra is also a member of a public speaking group and was a significant member of New Norfolk's Bicentennial Committee and the organiser of a Back to Maydena day.
