About Pamela

I come from a small business family.

Businesses that my close family has owned: Flower Importer, Textile + Sweater Factory, Retail clothing stores, Yoga studio, Catering Company, Floral Designer, Web Design Firm, Retail Gifts, Massage Therapy Business, Logistics Consulting, Design Studio.

Our dinner table looked like a tiny innovation lab.

All seven of us contributing, working together and ideating on how to improve our lives, our businesses. 

I love being an entrepreneur.

 I’m a BIG believer that small business and entrepreneurship is a great avenue for having control over how we spend our time (our only non-renewable resource!)

I’m passionate about education. 

I’m a natural helper and empath. I love teaching and feel most at home in the classroom. 

being bilingual helps me explain tech and design in simple terms. 
I pride myself in being able to talk to anyone.  I’ve been bilingual since I was a kid. This skill helps me easily relate and understand different points of views. This is one of my favorite skills. 

i believe in designing for justice. 

I believe we have the right tools to design technology and organizations that help heal the world. I see my purpose closely tied to helping this happen.
