“Giving people those quick tips and helping them create new skills to achieve better sleep or manage stress is really rewarding,” Sander said. “I love to meet new patients, especially children, and look forward to being a part of the behavioral health team.”

Sander completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Cincinnati University Health Services in Ohio. She earned her doctor of psychology degree at Xavier University in Cincinnati, and has an undergraduate degree from Thomas More College in Crestview Hills, Kentucky.
