After years working with infants as a neonatal feeding specialist, she became aware of the dangers of plastics, and combined with witnessing excessive plastic waste in hospitals, the idea for a glass baby bottle was born. This idea would eventually grow into a market-leading international company and lifestyle brand for the entire family.
Pam’s experience working to reduce plastic use with Lifefactory® led her to a board position with 5 Gyres, a leader in the global movement against plastic pollution using science and research to drive impact in advocacy and legislation.
Pam has spoken on environmental sustainability and manufacturing material choices both in the US and abroad.
Committed to diversity and women’s issues, Pam serves on the board of Women’s Audio Mission, a San Francisco-based nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of women in music technology and STEM.
