Dr. Kyriakopoulos oversees a range of Village programs spanning from prevention and early intervention, to treatment services. She has expertise in early childhood, maternal health, and trauma. Sandy’s focus in recent years has been in programming for children and families involved with foster care.
Dr. Kyriakopoulos has 18 years of experience in management of community mental health programs. She is also a well-known and respected member of various advisory boards, committees, and councils outside of The Village in the Greater Hartford area.
“I hope that my contributions make a difference in the lives of children and families touched by The Village,” says Dr. Kyriakopoulos. “Sometimes that difference is large, but most of the times it’s small and unexpected. I always strive to be innovative and creative and help us “do better” for families. Staff training and mentoring is another huge goal of mine. I hope to build supervisors and leaders in child development and the mental health/human service field at The Village and beyond.”
