Born in Hammond, Indiana, Attorney Sanders lived in Indiana until she graduated from the Culver Girls Academy.

In the summer of 2007, Attorney Sanders began a two year service commitment with the AmeriCorps Teach for America Program. She taught high school math at an underperforming turn around school in Charlotte, North Carolina. There she developed a passion for working with young adults.

In May of 2012, Attorney Sanders earned her Juris Doctorate degree from Suffolk University Law School, cum laude.

Additionally, she earned the John E. Fenton Jr. Award for Public Service for her commitment to helping those in need of legal services.
