    Sandy and her husband Tony have 3 children, 2 grandchildren 4 cats and a dog. Her MUMC ministry is one of fun and enjoyment - some say it’s better than therapy!!  They love to come together to praise God, to learn from the Word, and to be moved by the Holy Spirit and to direct people to become closer to Jesus through song, praise and worship.  As one of her passions, Sandy went out and met a need within the community and began the Madison City Community Orchestra - a place where are all musicians are able to play and enjoy being part of that type of organization.  Her motto: Music is the universal language that is able to break through every barrier and heal the soul.
