Overview

As the daughter of a high school history and government teacher, Sally Rogers grew up with a love of history and politics. Sally found her niche in the law while working for Senator Strom Thurmond on his Senate Judiciary Committee staff, first as a law clerk and then as Committee counsel. She served as a law clerk for The Honorable Emory M. Sneeden, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Following her clerkship with Judge Sneeden, she entered the private sector.  Now, years later, Sally continues to work at the intersection of law and politics representing businesses and professionals on matters before the South Carolina General Assembly and State agencies.

When the South Carolina Legislature is not in session, Sally enjoys spending time with family, especially her grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

She also likes to sing in the choir at church and would love to get back to playing piano someday (more lessons would be required!).

Finally, Sally is an avid sports fan – thanks to a father who played and coached numerous sports and was inducted into the Erskine Sports Hall of Fame.  She also relishes being the only Tiger fan in a family of Gamecocks.
