Sandy Parker has many titles – Office Manager, Board Secretary, and Department Supervisor. She’s happiest when juggling many things at once – obviously! Sandy enjoys lots of responsibility and considers it a privilege to work “behind the scenes.” She’ll do whatever it takes to help other departments get things done.

As you’ve probably guessed, Sandy has held many different titles throughout her career, including Insurance Claims Department Supervisor in Texas; a shoe store manager in New Mexico; a Collections and Foreclosure Supervisor in Texas; and a legal secretary to four attorneys in Bath, NY. Phew!

In 1994, Sandy took a job at Family Life as a secretary for Dick Snavely. Five months later, she was promoted to Office Manager. Sandy enjoys working alongside each employee of Family Life and truly loves what she does. Past jobs didn’t hold any real purpose for Sandy, but since coming to Family Life, her work has meaning – the result of being in God’s Will. Sandy will say, “I want to see the light from God’s flashlight just ahead of me, no matter where I am.”

Sandy and her husband Pete were married for 39 years before God gathered him up into Heaven on December 23, 2019. She loves the countryside of Western New York, taking pictures, making handcrafted cards, birdwatching and gardening. Sandy says she is extremely grateful to be a child of God and to be used by Him here at Family Life since 1994.
