As a mother of four active children, Sandy understands the challenges of dealing with insurance bills from doctor’s appointments to emergency room costs when unexpected health issues arise. She strongly believes Virginians should have access to low-cost quality healthcare. This can happen for all Virginians if insurance companies are allowed to compete across state lines and medical certifications are streamlined to eliminate bottlenecks in staffing medical facilities.

Living in Powhatan, Sandy also understands the need to expand the use of innovative technologies to access the internet for large rural populations like Virginia’s 10th District. Establishing strong digital networks across Virginia will increase telehealth opportunities and make it easier for low-income and working families to meet their critical health needs without having to take additional time off of work to get to doctors’ appointments.
