She grew up in Cozad, NE. Her last and favorite career was as a Peer Support Specialist at Meridian Behavioral Health Services where she was loved by many co-workers and students.

Pam was one of the most beautiful people I have ever met. She radiated light and love. I was lucky enough to work with Pam at Meridian where she was a beloved peer who helped so many people by empowering them to begin their recovery journey and walking alongside them. Pam used all the difficulties in her life to empathize with other people and meet them where they were. I am so blessed to have known her as a coworker and friend. She made me laugh, supported me in many ways, and I learned so much from her. She was a dear friend and I will carry her in my heart forever. I am so sorry for the loss of Pam, especially for her son, Austin, whom she loved so very much.
