She received her Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Bexley, Ohio and her Doctor of Ministry (DMin) degree from The Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. She loves to preach and lead worship!

Pastor Pam has served congregations in Illinois, Arizona and now California and finds her vocation to be one of holy joy.

She keeps busy by enjoying nature with walks along the beach, she’s an avid reader and loves to do needlework - mostly sewing, knitting and crocheting. In the last few years she has become a student of yoga and meditation which helps to keep her in balance.
