The 45-year-old maintains that she is on a quest to helping female vets rebuild their lives. She also explained how she connects with these women. She said:

"I want to help women Veterans. I want to help them find their way back into society and get on their feet." She continued, "I am doing this for other women who are in the position I was in. I was that woman vet."

The Air Force Veteran began an initiative known as "Women Empowered Build Strong." It concerns itself with building tiny homes and is based in California.

She became homeless within a few months of running out of cash, left with two children, and no partner; she fell into depression but soon went to join her friend in California, where she began a real estate business.

There has been support from every nook and cranny of the society, the indigenous politicians, current service Vandenberg Air Force base members, and the U.S Department in charge of Veteran Affairs.

In early 2019, the 45-year-old found two women residing in cars, and another two in shelter homes, she took up their cases and put them in an Orcutt stability home.

A few weeks ago, her "WEBS" finished the tiny homes project in Santa Barbara County, thus helping more women veterans with suitable accommodation.

Sandy's efforts are appreciated by these women and mostly commended by the people in authority. Steve Lavigno, a Santa Barbara district supervisor, praised the Air Force Vet for her involvement in the housing scheme.

Another beneficiary, Caity Casey idolized "WEBS" for navigating through her problems via its provisions.

The idea of helping women vets get on their feet again became a burning desire after the former Air Force personnel dealt with her life struggles.

The Kingston native had given more than a decade of her life to working in the Air Force but was denied a chance to reenlist following her battle with an allergy.

She became homeless within a few months of running out of cash, left with two children, and no partner; she fell into depression but soon went to join her friend in California, where she began a real estate business.

In a few months, she purchased some acres of land with which she nurtured for the "WEBS" initiative. Impressively, the non-profit organization is doing well in rescuing women vets out of the claws of suffering and hopelessness.

They recently hosted an event that saw the introduction of furniture and architectural designs to its attendees and interested participants.
