“Pamela and I have known each other for over 15 years. Those years have been filled with incredibly authentic conversations. Pamela is beautifully attentive, supporting, content, humoring, loving and tolerating. She is one of the best listeners who I’ve ever encountered, and then she leans in, educates, elevates, shares wisdom and inspires. She makes those who she meets, better people and leaders. She is wired for giving, positively impacting others, inspiring courage and strength through her genuine love, strength and natural compassion for others. She has made so many of us better throughout the years, and now she is joining us, so we can harness her powers to help those in our ethos; clients, candidate and colleagues, elevate their personal and professional lives.” – Jason Hanold, CEO, Hanold Associates
