“I feel privileged to have worked with people in just about every work environment, from huge corporations to non-profits, to tiny side businesses started on kitchen tables,” Pam says. “There is no right way to work—only the way that brings out your very best contribution to the world, and fits your definition of success. Work is not a necessary evil, it is a canvas for creating meaning, value, and the highest level of personal growth.”

She is a proud suburban mom in Mesa, AZ ,who enjoys the look on people’s faces when she tells them she is also a brown belt in Mixed Martial Arts (it comes in handy when fighting for the last good bunch of kale at the grocery store).
