Pamela grew up in a military family moving from coast to coast and around the U.S. every two to three years. She was born in Hawaii, but has lived in Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina, Missouri, and California. Her family moved back to Virginia in 1997, as she entered the seventh grade. Pamela's family has remained in Virginia Beach for over thirteen years, and of course, now she calls Virginia home.
Pamlea attended the University of Missouri from 2003 to 2004, until she landed her dream job as a dolphin trainer in Orlando, Florida. While working in Florida she completed her bachelor’s degree online through Liberty University. During this period, the Lord began to stir up a passion for missions in her heart.
In 2008, Pamela travelled to Nairobi, Kenya, teaching and ministering to children in the Kibera Slum for eight weeks. Her interest in missions grew into a love for Africa and teaching. When she returned from Kenya, Pamela moved back to Virginia and accepted a position as a special education assistant while completing her Master of Arts in Teaching at Liberty University. During this period she traveled to Honduras and Peru, where her desire to serve her Savior as a missionary continued to grow.
Pamela graduated from Liberty in May of 2010 and accepted a fulltime 4th grade teaching position for the 2010-2011 school year. During the summer of 2011, she will travel to Bundibugyo, Uganda to begin teaching at the Rwenzori Mission School. She is overjoyed to be part of a team that is sharing the love of Christ, and bringing hope and restoration to the people of Uganda.
