Sandra Wong: Volunteer Recognition

Sandra Wong: Volunteer Recognition recipient was born at TMC and grew up in Marana and Tucson. After receiving an engineering degree from the University of Arizona, she moved to California to pursue a career in aerospace. She enjoyed her time working on satellite systems, but eventually she tired of the California life and missed the Sonoran dessert.

Upon her return to Tucson, she continued work as an engineer. It was at this time she found her passion for Hospital-based volunteering. After approximately 16 years of hospital volunteering at Banner- University Medical Center and Tucson Medical Center, she’s contributed over 14,000 hours of volunteer time. Most of that time was spent working with Tucson hospital NICUs, helping the staff care for their tiny patients.
