Her philosophy has always been to encourage creative and independent thinking, and to encourage following one’s dreams. She is passionate about guiding children to reach their full potential and to thrive as individuals.
This author grew up in Saskatchewan and eventually moved to Vancouver, B.C. She eventually settled in White Rock B.C., a small city by the sea. Her studies led her to a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing and then a Master’s Degree in Education. During her years of study, Pamela discovered writing to be onerous and one of her least favorite aspects about education. She was sure she would never write again.
Pamela retired from Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Faculty of Health. How writing a children’s book landed on her Retirement Bucket List, remains a mystery.
