Bachelor of Agricultural Business, Class of 1996
After graduating, Sandy worked for PIRSA for two years in both Waikerie and Adelaide. During her time in Adelaide, she worked with the Soil Conservation Boards, travelling to communities across the state and assisting with their training needs. Following this, she worked in Berri as a Project Officer for the (then named) River Murray Catchment Water Management Board, working on the public consultation for the Catchment Water Management Planning and Water Allocation Planning that was occurring at the time.
Sandy is married to Andrew Falting. The pair started dating in their second year at Roseworthy and were married in 2000. They now live on their Loxton family farm with their two daughters, Lara and Esther. Since having children, Sandy has become more involved with Tarree Pastoral and continues to work in the family business.
Sandy grew up on a dairy farm and has always been interested in agriculture. The Bachelor of Agricultural Business at Roseworthy allowed Sandy to major in both Marketing and Farm Business Management, a combination that appealed to her.
She says her favourite memory of Roseworthy was attending the car rally with good friends and driving the hand-painted pink Ford Futura across the Adelaide Plains
