Pam counts the last few years as her most spiritually challenging, as well as most rewarding years of her life. She grew up in the Midwest and graduated from Indiana University with a business degree. Heading straight to Chicago out of college, she started her career in public accounting at Touche Ross and later went on to work as the chief financial officer for a commercial real estate developer. She and Rick fell in love with the Coachella Valley many years ago and began spending winters here. Through God's providential hand and an invitation from a new friend at Ironwood, they were led to the Red Door Wednesday night Bible study. In a short time, she and Rick signed up to accompany Jeffrey to Israel, got baptized in the Jordon River, and made a life-changing commitment to follow Jesus. The opportunity to grow together in a community of fellow believers has had a profound impact on their lives. Her life goals now are to help people maximize their own God-given potential, as well as be the best she can be with the gifts God has bestowed upon her. Pam and Rick have been married for 36 years and have two married children and five grandsons.
