From 1985 to 1992, Ms. Sanders served as a U.S. Senate Labor Committee staff and legislative aide in the office of Senator Thad Cochran. Following her entrance into the political sphere, she continued her work as a White House counsel staff member and for the U.S. Treasury Department for legislative affairs under the administration of President George H.W. Bush. Thereafter, she held the position of senior vice president of the American Bakers Association for nearly two decades. During that time, Ms. Sanders became a certified association executive (CAE) through the American Society of Association Executives in 2009 and went on to become the president of the Society of Bakery Women, an organization which provides networking opportunities for women in the baking industry and mentors students pursuing a career in the industry.

While occupying this position, Ms. Sanders earned certifications through the University of Virginia Darden School of Business; in 2017 and 2018, she completed executive education certificates in strategic analysis and decision-making program followed by leading teams for growth and change. Along with occupying the role of president for the Society of Bakery Women, a position she has held since 2012 and still holds, Ms. Sanders became a board member for the Business-Industry Political Action Committee (BIPAC) in 2018. Additionally, in tandem with her career, she has devoted time to civic engagements in her community and in the realm of her work.

Ms. Sanders is a member of the University of Mississippi's Political Science Advisory Board.
