Meet Our Staff

Sandy Hackett


Sandy came to Lake City Presbyterian in 2010 after 20 years as an associate pastor in large congregations. She loves serving this smaller church now, where she can know people’s names and hear their stories. She brings to us large church preaching gifts, a joyful sense of humor, and a globetrotting husband who is also a Presbyterian pastor. Sandy and Dave have three adult daughters who give them reason to admire work being done with the technology industry, the gay community and the University of Washington.  Contact her at or 206-362-6878 x201.
