Angie Jackson
Office Manager

My name is Angela Jackson and I am the Office Manager at Sandberg Northwest Volvo. I have been born and raised in the car business, but didn't realize it would ultimately be my career path. I started washing cars as a summer job in high school and never really left! Two college degrees and 22 years later, I am still part of the Sandberg Northwest Volvo family. I have worked in every department of the dealership, which has given me a true perspective and appreciation for everyone's position.

I grew up in Redmond, so I haven't strayed too far from my initial roots. I am a proud wife and busy mother of two boys. My family loves the water, so we try to travel anywhere that is either on or by the water. When I am not working or traveling with my family, I am either driving carpool for school and sports or gardening.

I am grateful and proud to be part of Sandberg Northwest Volvo. It is truly my home away from home.

Overseas delivery is a great experience, not only do you get to see where Volvo's are built, but you also get the great experience of the culture and country of Sweden.

I was born and raised in the Northwest, primarily Mukilteo.  I've traveled the world quite a bit but this is, and always will be, home.  My wife and I have a son at Harbour Pointe Middle School.  We enjoy camping locally with our dogs (Giant Schnauzers) and of course little league with our son.
