Sims was active at the University of Montana; volunteering for SCHWA (Students in Communication and Hearing Working in Action), the Advocate program which give tours and meets and greets the visitors on campus, and the Davidson Honors College Social House which provided her with experience in her future field and was able to learn more about the community she is living in.
