SANDY STEWART landed in family law following a career as a surface warfare officer in the U.S. Navy. Beginning at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, she served a follow-on staff tour in Washington, DC, where she completed her degree in business economics and public policy at George Washington University. In addition to multiple tours in Hawaii, the highlight of her time in the Navy was aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS ABRAHAM LINCOLN where she became the first woman in the ship’s history to qualify to stand in for the captain on the navigation bridge. Sandy returned to Massachusetts to raise her son, and as he grew, she gradually returned to the work force, ultimately joining the Cape Cod law firm Michael I. Flores, PC, as assistant to the principal attorney. As the firm expanded, so did Sandy’s responsibilities and knowledge of family law. Sandy brings this near-decade experience in family law to Clapp Family Law. When not working, Sandy enjoys walking her puggle, reading naval history, and time with friends.
