Sandi Baker Fort
Sandi works for Select Health of South Carolina: part of a larger company called AmeriHealth Caritas. Their Medicaid market includes ten states and the District of Columbia. Corporate encourages its employees to volunteer in our communities and to record volunteer hours for their review. She received an email recently informing her that she is one of the top ten volunteers (hours served) in the entire corporation for the 2022 calendar year. This includes all ten states and DC. She put in around 400 hours last year.
Her volunteer time is spent at Seacoast Church, where she serves on the Emergency Response Team. They’re fully trained by the SC Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and they receive additional training as well – active shooter, mass casualty, CPR and Stop the Bleed, among others. She says, “It’s a good fit for me because I’m an adrenaline junkie who would rather run toward trouble than away from it. We have a great team, and it’s an honor to be a part of it.”
