Indigenous/Aboriginal Infant Development Consultant



Hi! My name is Pam, and I am a mother of 2 beautiful daughters. I was raised in Abbotsford. I have more than 15 years of experience in teaching and out of which 8 years I worked as a Daycare Manager. I love spending time with children teaching them and learning from them.  I am pleased to work with Fraser River Indigenous Society providing support and resources to all Indigenous people in the community as well as learning from them about their rich culture. Indigenous culture and traditions have always fascinated me and I strive to learn more and look forward to building connections with the families in our community. Fun fact: - I am also a make up artist and love cooking in my free time.
