A medical technologist by education and training, Pam's heart was broken for the plight of the African orphan after attending a concert by the Watoto Children's Choir. She joined others with a similar passion who desired to replicate the Watoto model of orphan care in East Africa, and in 2009 Kulea Childcare Villages became a reality. Pam's skills include creative problem solving and strategic planning, and she has considerable experience with policy writing in a non-profit setting. A self-described "worker bee", she is often behind the scenes working to accomplish the work of Kulea. She has been a member of the board since its inception in 2009, serving both as Secretary and Vice Chair.
