Each day, Sandie feels lucky to be paid to do what she loves, teach. Her career in nursing education goes back to the 1990's and has focused on undergraduate nursing. Currently, she teaches a nursing fundamentals course, professional development and health care budget. When she is not teaching, she enjoys conducting research on professional development with a focus on caring education. Outside of work her hobbies include gardening, hiking, cooking, taking care of her many rescued pets and making art.

Her main area of practice is nursing, but she has also been involved in K-12 teacher professional development. Sandie also has developed ePortfolios and MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses). Regarding her teaching style, she prefers interaction with small group activities. In addition, project based learning is also a part of how she helps people grow into professionals.

Sandie has published over a dozen articles and is the editor of the Rural Nurse Organization's newsletter. This is an international organization which promotes health within rural areas. Also, she has made presentations about various research projects in several countries including the US, Finland, China, and the Czech Republic.
