Pamela studied Journalism at Portland State University and was an avid, lifelong writer. In addition to her exceptional writing talent, she was blessed with many gifts. At the age of 27, Pamela moved to Australia, a place she has always treasured and considered home.
Pamela returned to the United States in 1990 and later opened Secret Oasis Day Spa. One of Pamela’s greatest passions was the study of longevity and wellness. For over a decade, Pamela worked towards writing a book about her research and one day opening her own anti-aging institute. In addition to her studies, Pamela loved cooking, traveling, driving fast cars, and creating memories with her family and friends. She was the life of the party, spreading joy and laughter to all who knew her. Pamela was truly a loving mother, daughter, sister, and friend.
