About

Applying 30 years of business, government, and nonprofit experience, I work with business owners and nonprofit boards to improve their outcomes whether it's develping a strategy to implement their goals, putting into place better systems and processes, or administratively managing the day to day operations of their business. 

My career began in associations where my advocacy skills were developed in state and then federal legislative policymaking.  I became a small business owner, building and growing a business for twelve years before selling it.  Since then, I have served as CEO and Interim CEO of Chambers of Commerce, as an Administrative Manager and Interim Executive Director for nonprofits, as a Fractional CEO and in various other roles for small businesses. From the diversity of my experience, I have gained insights and a wealth of knowledge that can help you make your business thrive.

Philosophy: I believe in maintaining a positive mindset, creating partnerships with a purpose, and always striving for significant outcomes. When you work with me, expect to accomplish projects and tasks through collaboration, professionalism, transparency, and consistency.

Business Operations and Development

I excel at getting things done for your business and can handle your business organization, operations, project management, change management, client relations, and budgeting.  Serving as a Fractional and Virtual CEO, I have managed the everyday operations for businesses owners who want to concentrate on the bigger picture. 

I use my project management skills to implement action items getting you to the next level. I have managed systems integration projects, reorganization, and clean up projects.  My marketing background can help develop your brand, create a marketing plan, and implement your marketing and sales strategies.   

Business Strategy

Many business owners need to spend time on planning but don't always have an efficient way to determine their next moves.  I can help owners, boards and staff walk the paths necessary to find their way to success.

NonProfit Management & Development

Most nonprofits are built around passion projects or issues where people want to "do the work".  Sometimes the administration of the organization takes a back seat.  My expertise allows your people to implement your programs while I handle the operations.  My strengths lie in mission and strategy development,  board development and management, organizational structure and day-to-day operations, membership relations, budgeting, and program development.

Catherine Heywood

VP Community Relations, 

Visit Napa Valley

Pam is someone who takes a thoughtful, strategic and solutions-driven approach to her endeavors, be it on a project of her own, as a partner in support of a colleague, or in a collaboration, as is often the case in the tourism industry.  She is a person determined to figure out how to "make things work" when set on accomplishing a goal.

Katie Somple

Pam is one of those rare individuals who approach her commitments with everything in her tool chest and assumes a level of bottom-line responsibility like an entrepreneur. The combination of her varied professional background, work ethic, and brave attitude make her a formidable force for whatever she sets her focus on.

If I were assembling a strong team to accomplish a goal, Pam would be one of my first, top recruits because she weights the advantage for whatever team she’s on.  Any business (for-profit or non-profit) will benefit from her involvement, especially as a leader and visionary.
