The Volunteer Behavioral Health Care System (VBHCS) recently announced the retirement of Dr. Sandra Phillips from its agency.
Phillips was awarded a plaque honoring her for 37 years of service at a recent luncheon held at Cumberland Mental Health Center (CMHC). Phillips spent most of her time working in the Lebanon office. While having served in many different roles from therapist to administration over her career, Phillips has spent the majority of her time as a forensic evaluator serving not only Wilson County's judicial system but several other counties across Middle Tennessee as well.
During her career, Phillips has also taken the witness stand in some of Wilson County's most memorable and high-profile trials. It was recently noted that Phillips may have performed more forensic evaluations than anyone in the state.
"Dr. Phillips has been an inspiration to those she has worked with at CMHC and always went above and beyond regarding the quality of service and care she gave to everyone she encountered," said Nathan Miller, director of CMHC. "We want to thank her for being an inspiration and wish her a happy retirement."
