Pam studied Marine Biology at the University of Guelph & Commercial Photography at Sheridan College. Her love of the water has led her to many aquatic pursuits - canoeing as a child, competitive sailing, sprint canoe/kayak racing  and long distance Outrigger Canoe racing before discovering the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding. 

Pam is a certified Paddle Canada SUP Basic & Advanced Flatwater Instructor, as well as a Coastal Touring 1 Instructor. 

Pam is a proud supporter and global leader for the girls on boards program, which provides female youth with the opportunity to learn and experience various board sports.  She is also a supporter of Oceans Week Victoria which tries to foster connections and engagement within the community by providing a platform to support ocean-inspired events on southern Vancouver Island

Her emphasis is always on safety & technical skills while having fun in a positive, supportive environment. Her goal is to share a love of the ocean, from the perspective of paddling and ocean literacy in order to foster connections between people  and between people and the sea.
