Pam leads the human resources team at Jackson Spalding, bringing global, for-profit and not-for-profit talent management experience to bear for our expanding organization.

Most recently, Pam was Vice President and Managing Director of Human Resources for the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), based in Colorado Springs. During her nine years there, she led teams focused on talent acquisition and development, human resource operations, diversity & inclusion, and athlete benefits, career and education.  During her leadership, the USOPC received recognition in diversity, diversity innovation, wellness and veteran support.

While in Colorado, Pam served as a volunteer advisor to the City of Colorado Springs Public Arts Commission and Colorado Springs Utilities.

Her career began in the cable television industry, with The Weather Channel, weather.com and Turner Broadcasting.  She had the honor of opening Turner’s human resources operations in Europe, supporting CNN, TNT and Cartoon Network employees in London, Paris and Amsterdam during the company’s heady acquisition period.

A native of Atlanta, GA, Pam is a graduate of The University of Georgia. In 2016 she earned a Certificate in Women’s Executive Leadership from the Tuck Business School at Dartmouth College. She’s also a graduate from the Women in Cable & Telecommunication’s Betsy Magness Graduate Institute. Earlier, she was chosen to join a team Rotary Exchange experience in Bangladesh.

The die may have been cast for Pam early in life as she observed her father managing talent issues in his executive role at Capricorn Records. She intercepted the occasional 911 calls from famous rock artists who phoned for advice while on tour.

She and her husband have three grown children. They are sports fans and ardent travelers who have set a goal to visit all the continents.  Pam also has a goal to write a few books—no biggie for someone who has already scaled mountains in business and in life.
