An experience of what I deliver—be it through one of my presentations, performances, Q & A’s and/or group trainings & facilitations—is often described this way:

refreshing, uplifting
multi-faceted, insightful
innovative, intuitive
extremely original


Booking me begins with a conversation with you. Whether you are the principal of a high school, the coordinator of professional events, social gatherings or public affairs radio programs, or a project manager carrying out one of the governor’s initiatives for community benefit, I will listen to what you need and design a presentation that will meet and exceed your expectations.

With her characteristic sensitivity, wit, and self-revelation Pamela takes us on a linguistic ride through
complex emotional terrain.

~Judith Waldman, Psychotherapist

Here’s what teens at a University of Washington Writing Program had to say about their experience of one of my guest artist appearances:

…the way you are not afraid to portray your emotion inspires me to do the same in my writing…I love your poems and songs…I really admired the beautiful language, concise dialogue, your many identities…makes me think more about closely paying attention to detail, flow and rhythm, how powerful metaphor can be…I love how your work felt deeply personal and private, yet really relatable and attractive…made me instantly connect and pay attention…you and your characters’ journeys gave me inspiration for my own and provided a powerful meditation on the self…

…while Sackett makes us laugh and cry intermittently, she bends deep into our psyche, whispering the truth about what life is…

~Christina Roux, teacher (language arts, french, history)

My presentations run from sixty to ninety minutes and include a Q & A with the audience. My material is drawn from literary and theatrical books I authored, songs I composed, some of which I have produced into songbook movies, as well as both highly personal and universally relatable videos with illustrations, spoken narrative and songs.

Through my art and a bit of plain English, I address subtle facets of identity, perception, trust, roles and relationships, mutual inclusivity, feeling favoritism vs. feeling equity, the narrative inherent in brain imperatives, self-knowledge, fear and freedom of expression.

I bring seasoned, trauma-informed, language-focused perspectives to any one or more of these rich, thought-provoking topics of your choosing, with the intention to foster and facilitate self & social awareness, communication skill development and expansion (aka emotion literacy advocacy).

…nourishing, clear, endearing, radically life-affirming, real…her voice comes alive with the clarity of who she is and is courageous to be…Pamela is a beacon of truth in everything I’ve been wading through…I trust her!
~Jennifer Johnson
