Pamela believes that if we see something that needs doing we should do it, and that we each have a responsibility to promote equity, as well as to defend and promote the rights of the marginalized.
Pamela comes to Olympic Angels with extensive experience in accounting, financial management, fiscal reporting, and procedural development in private and non-profit environments both domestically and internationally.
After what she calls “the 25-year plan”, she earned a degree in Anthropology from the University of Washington, with minors in Business and Finance, English, Spanish, and Geology. Following a career in the North Pacific fishing industry and residence in Alaska plus life and work in a social/health services non-profit on Kaua'i, Pamela returned to the Pacific Northwest, where her family has deep roots in Jefferson County. She sees her work at Olympic Angels as supporting a program of critical interventions with tangible, quantifiable results for children and families experiencing foster care in a community she calls home.
