Sandra (Sandy) Walshesky has provided administrative support to David Burstin for a remarkable stretch of 40 years! When Julie Burstin joined the firm, Sandy also took on helping Julie with back office support. She describes her job as anything and everything that David and Julie need for the practice. This ranges from managing schedules to overseeing the underwriting process, and of course, to answering calls from the many second and third generation clients Sandy has come to know over the years.

A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh, Sandy is a former ESL Instructor, who worked as a VISTA volunteer prior to joining the firm. She currently resides in Verona, Pennsylvania and enjoys gardening and spending time with family and friends.
