Cheat Lake Location

Pamela was born in Morgantown, WV and graduated from West Virginia University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal and Veterinary Sciences under the Pre-Veterinary Medicine program.  Shortly after graduation in 1990 she began working with La Leche League of Florida and La Leche League International providing breastfeeding education and support. Since 1999 she has worked at local hospitals providing childbirth education, and lactation education and support.  She also teaches at an online high school that has students from around the world, and her class focus is anatomy and physiology, biology 1, practical math, algebra 1, and health.  She also is a certified EMT.  She begun working on her Master's degree in Maternal and Infant Health, but has put that on hold to return to school to work on her Bachelor's degree in nursing.  With almost 30 years of experience in lactation, she is an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant, Registered Lactation Consultant, Certified Lactation Counselor, and an International Certified Child Birth Educator.  In her free time, Pamela loves to spend time with her husband of 30 years, and their 2 grown children.  She also works in animal rescue and has a "shoeful" of furkids on their farm.  Working at Cardinal and building a lactation program with them is a dream come true.
