She began her career as a tutor, scribe, and reader for peers with disabilities at both Sacramento City College and University of California at Davis while attending as an undergraduate.
A family member’s personal journey with recovery from serious mental illness compelled Sally to serve on the board of the National Alliance on Mental Illness as a certified family support group facilitator and resource guide and coordinator for NAMI's signature education programs. Sally holds appointed seats on the Yolo County Local Mental Health Board, the Yolo County Proposition 47 Local Advisory Committee, and the CA Mental Health Services Oversight & Accountability Commission as a member of the Client & Family Leadership Committee.
Additionally, she serves as a trained Restorative Justice panelist for Yolo County’s Neighborhood Court Program and shares her family’s journey as part of Yolo County's Post Certified Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) program that trains police officers in de-escalation techniques when responding to psychiatric emergencies.
Sally holds an Administrative Credential and has completed a Master’s program focusing her thesis on the systems change and the Multi-Tiered System of Supports framework to support an LEA’s process for alignment with the current policies and frameworks driving California public education system.
