Our Team

Sandy Parker, Business Assistant (she/her)

If you call JVC Northwest, there is a 50% chance you will talk with me as I am one of the two people who have worked from the office throughout the pandemic. In my role as Business Assistant, I focus on the JV community budgets, office management and property management. I also fill in the gaps when other departments need assistance. One of the things I love most about my work at JVC Northwest is having the opportunity to connect with our Jesuit Volunteers – they provide me with hope and joy (when they aren’t tampering with smoke detectors).

Outside of JVC Northwest, I enjoy quilting, reading (am in multiple book groups – including JVC Northwest’s Ruined Readers), gardening, knitting, cooking & canning, listening to podcasts and taking walks along the Columbia River.  I’m the proud mother of an FJV and my four children are currently scattered around the country so, together with my husband, I am living the empty nester lifestyle.

JVC Northwest has been an important community for me over the last 7+ years; it has both stretched and taught me so much. I am thankful for the opportunity to work with amazing people who share a purposeful mission.
