Her genuine laughter rings out, as Sandra Baughman, of Calumet, tells you how she really isn’t bothered by too much in life, that she always stays positive. Born and raised in the Calumet area, Baughman met and married her husband, Edward, right out of high school. The two have been married for 25 years, and have raised two children, Joseph and Amy. Always on the go, Baughman loves to shop. She says her favorite shopping buddy is her daughter. The two spend hours scouring the malls and shops.
A computer junkie, Baughman loves to work with her computer. She is presently taking part-time classes at Westmoreland County Community College, where she hopes to acquire an associate’s degree in either office technology or computer technology.
