Her extensive journalistic career is littered with highlights but perhaps none are more significant and poignant as the September, 11 terror attacks.

Sandra spoke with Douglas Wood in TEN's exclusive, world-first interview with the Australian hostage freed from his kidnappers in Iraq. 

Sandra was in Thredbo during one of Australia's worst natural disasters, the Thredbo Landslide.  This horrific piece of news was delivered professionally and under difficult conditions and covered the emotional rescue of Stuart Diver. 

She has subsequently covered the anniversary commemorations of both the Bali Bombings and September 11 tragedies.

Her versatility has enabled her to cover numerous Network events including becoming the first woman to co-host Australia's national iconic sporting event, The Melbourne Cup and was part of the coverage for seven years.

Sandra was selected to host the prestigious Australian of the Year Awards with then Prime Minister John Howard for five years in Canberra.

Since joining Network Ten, Sandra has been an integral part of the news team, covering elite events such as the Atlanta Games and the XV Commonwealth Games in Canada.
