Sandra’s career has always focused on roles where communities are at the heart of her work – as a teacher in four different countries and later, over a decade in Community Development and Community Planning in local government. At Community Centres SA, she managed the Results Based Accountability™ implementation across South Australia, supporting the government and community sectors to evidence impact and strengthen accountability. Sandra was also one of the founding members of the SA chapter of the Social Impact Measurement Network Australia.
As the CEO of Together SA, her work focuses on cross-sector systemic and cultural change, to disrupt the status quo and improve the wellbeing of whole communities. Through the social change framework of Collective Impact, Together SA connects communities with the Not For Profit and government sectors as genuine partners, defining and developing sustainable outcomes for the most disadvantaged people in our state.
