The ceremony took place at Buckingham Palace following the Queen’s recent return from her summer break at Balmoral.

At Scottish Enterprise, Sandra was a core member of the award winning Dundee City of Discovery campaign and is widely credited with promoting the city-region as a world class destination nationally and internationally.

At the chamber, she led an energetic team through a phase of continuous improvement – recruiting new members and providing a strong voice for the local business community.

She led several significant change projects at the Care Commission that improved accessibility to inspection reports for service users and helped with the introduction of grading to deliver better quality care.

Sandra, who lives in Angus and was an active community councillor for Tealing for several years, was accompanied at the presentation by her husband Tom and two sons, Steven and Lewis.
