Pam practiced intellectual property law in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles after starting her career as a semiconductor engineer in Dallas. As a lawyer, she provided clients patent counseling in the electrical, mechanical and software arts. She and her husband Bob, a retired patent trial lawyer, relocated to Naples in April 2020.
She has held leadership positions in major intellectual property law organizations and has taught at several law schools as an adjunct professor. In the spirit of giving back, Pam applies her skills in a number of philanthropic arenas, including educational opportunities and support for first generation college students, young lawyer mentoring, and access to services by the homeless.
Pam earned her law degree from George Washington University (1987) and her degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University (1980). Her interests include food, wine, downhill skiing, and music. She and Bob are delighted to be supporters of Gulfshore Playhouse.
