Pam has been a COTA-certified occupational therapy assistant for 20+ years with Benedictine. During the past couple of years she has worn several hats including nurse aide partner, COVID swabber, and more. She is always ready to help and attends work every day with a positive attitude. She is a member of the Core Club committee and works to support her fellow co-workers. Pam provides excellent care and is a strong advocate for our residents’ wants and needs.

When not working, Pam enjoys snowmobiling, ATV trail riding, mountain biking, boating on the inland lakes, camping and most of all her family. Pam and her husband Eric have two children. Following in Pam’s footsteps, daughter Megan is a registered nurse and son Logan is a physical therapist. This summer, they welcomed their new daughter-in-law, Macy, into the family. They also keep their household full with two gorgeous labs, one yellow and one black.

When it comes to goodness, work or play, Pam is a true artist.
