Pamela has always enjoyed working with others and she knew early on she wanted to make a difference. Pamela earned a bachelor’s degree in Child Development with a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential.

After moving to San Diego Pamela landed a job with the County of San Diego, as a Social Worker I.

During her time in child Welfare Services, she had the opportunity to work, supervise and manage core programs such as Emergency Response, Continuing Services, Child Abuse Hotline, and the Medically Fragile/DEAF Services Unit.
