She served as a medical assistant/interpreter at Promise, 2015-16, and then worked as an assistant manager at Pizza Hut in Sioux Center, 2016-18, before returning to Promise.
Promise serves everyone, whether they have health insurance or not, but Sandra appreciates the fact that the health center has a particular focus on reaching out to the underserved.
“Ever since I was in high school, I knew I wanted to be able to help people in any way I could,” she said. “What better way to help than to help the underserved or people that only speak Spanish understand what their doctor is saying?”
