Sandie Hammerly

Born and raised in what was then the small town of Leesburg, Virginia, my younger sister and I were raised by my older sister and her husband after I lost my mom to cancer and my father to mental illness before I graduated high school. Although always a good student, I thrived in the academic freedom found at a small independent college, and graduated Magna Cum laude with degrees in English and Philosophy, and lots of hours in political science. Although I thought my career would be in service to the law, the then mayor of Lynchburg, VA convinced me that a career in non-profits would better suit my abilities to engage the community, analyze data, and lead others to make positive change. He was right.

Community Experience:  4 years – Parks, Recreation, Open Space and Trails Advisory Committee, 3 as Vice Chair. 7 years – Board of Directors Summit at Rock Creek Homeowners Association, 5 as vice president. Active volunteer for community events and programs including Superior Morgul, 4th of July parade, and ChiliFest.

My career of inclusive leadership of local, national and non-profit organizations includes:

• Currently Director of Finance, Arvada Community Food Bank
• Executive Director – Broomfield Soccer Club
• Treasurer, Secretary, Board of Directors, World Flying Disc Federation (member, International Olympic Committee)
• Executive Director – Ultimate Players Association (now USA Ultimate)
• Assistant Executive Director – United States Field Hockey (member US Olympic Committee)
• Executive Director – International Society of Hybrid Microelectronics Educational Foundation
• United Way – More than eleven years of generating revenues through workplace fundraising and building partnerships with local businesses and national corporations to support local and state community-based human services as well as United Way of America

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.
