Pam is one of our newest members and is excited to join the growing number of Sarge’s supporters. Growing up in Waynesville as a daughter of a Dayco Engineer, she rode motorcycles with her Golden Retriever Duke running by her side. She graduated from Tuscola and then High Point University. Her desire to be a prosecutor took her to law school in Michigan, and that dream came true when she prosecuted for the State of NC for eight years after law school. She married a Highway Patrolman she met in the courtroom and brought him back home with her. After their wedding he surprised her with a Golden Retriever puppy, Jake. She left the DA’s office after they had her first child and entered private practice. Her practice consisted mostly of family and criminal law. She left the stress of a solo practice and is now the director of the Paralegal Program at Southwestern Community College and teaches all the law courses. She lives in Waynesville with her husband who is now a retired Sergeant of the Highway Patrol, their 14-year-old son [who plays Tuscola soccer], their 12-year-old daughter [who wants to be a Veterinarian], a Boxer [Tank], a Golden Retriever puppy [Chief, another surprise from her husband] and a cat named Trooper.
