Sandra More is the Director of Development of CONNECT Summit County, a nonprofit advocacy organization that supports community members who are struggling with their mental health or supporting others who are facing mental-health challenges through programming, education, and resource referral. She served on the board of directors of CONNECT from 2019 to 2022, most recently as Co-Vice Chair.

From 2020 to 2022, Sandra was Development Associate with Peace House, a Park City-based nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing interpersonal violence and abuse and supporting families who’ve suffered from domestic violence. She is trained in both QPR (question, persuade, refer) and SAFEtalk, which are suicide-prevention programs, as well as Youth Mental Health First Aid and the LEAP (listen, empathize, agree, partner) method of mental-illness intervention.
She holds an Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Fund Development from the Mendoza School of Business at the University of Notre Dame. Sandra has many years of lived experience with loved ones who have suffered from mental illness and substance abuse and cares deeply about supporting people’s mental health and preventing substance abuse among young people in our community. She has lived in Park City for 21 years and enjoys getting out on the hiking trails as often as she can, as well as nature photography and dogs.
