She graduated from Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio in 1995. Family and the outdoors brought Pam to North Lake Tahoe in the winter of 1997. She became an integral part of the community with her ever-present smile, infectious positivity, and willingness to help people.

Pam also spent over a decade as a Board member and volunteer for the North Tahoe Business Association.

Pam cherished her decades-long friendships and loved international travel, live music and festivals, comedy, theater, and community events. Everyone who knew Pam was inspired by her gigantic heart, hard work, and how she lived life to the absolute fullest.
