Sandy was born and raised in Washington. After graduating from Northwestern Law School in Chicago with honors and as a member of Law Review, she returned to Washington. She started her law career at a civil law firm specializing in complex litigation with an emphasis on Employment Law. In 1996, Sandy became a King County Prosecutor. She spent the next fifteen years prosecuting misdemeanor crimes with a large percentage of her cases involving domestic violence. As a result, she has extensive knowledge and experience dealing with domestic violence issues, including obtaining and fighting Protection Orders, the impact of domestic violence on children, and how to navigate criminal restraining orders.
