Sandra is married to Dr. Tony MacIssac, whom she credits as being very supportive throughout the time it took it to complete this degree. Tony was involved with the military and they moved a few times while Sandra was working on her degree, which is why the flexibility that AU offered was so appealing to Sandra. Sandra is a dental hygienist who worked full time while obtaining her degree – at one point she even worked two jobs. She would advise students to make a study schedule and stick to it! She now plans to pursue an MPH (Masters of Public Health). Getting this degree has meant a great sense of satisfaction for fulfilling a goal she has had for a long time. AU convocation was an enjoyable experience for Sandra.
Congratulation Sandra MacIssac, BSC!
