As the largest, locally headquartered community bank in the Greater Washington region, Sandy Spring Bank works closely with Capital Area Food Bank, the region’s largest food bank, to help fight hunger. That’s why over the past six years we have donated over 120,000 meals and worked with the food bank to help improve access to nutritious food for all of our neighbors.

This year I am celebrating my 20th anniversary with Sandy Spring Bank. In 1996, I fell in love and relocated to Rockville from Chicago. I worked for an ad agency in Chicago and it was a stressful life. So when I moved, I was determined to have a career with more life balance.
