She received her Bachelors from Emory University in 2011.  After graduating Pamela moved to New York City to work in music marketing / tour management. During her tenure working in the music industry, Pamela developed a passion for helping those struggling with addiction and family issues. 

She returned home to the DMV area to work towards achieving her Masters in Family Therapy (MFT) from Virginia Tech. Pamela takes pleasure in teaching life skills to the teens at NorthStar. She is looking forward to becoming a certified interventionist.
