She did graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley, but devoted most of her career to teaching and education administration in eastern North Dakota. Her last twenty years of teaching and service were at Mayville State Teachers College (now Mayville State University). Sand retired in 1948 and received a distinguish service award from UND in 1961.
