As a firm believer in proactive hope for developing countries, Pam works for national development in both the government and the nonprofit sector. She recently started her work as a civil servant at the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) where she assists in providing GAD capacity development programs for all Philippine government agencies under the Technical Services and Regional Coordination Division.
At HealthJustice Philippines (HJ), she built and executed tobacco control and health promotion campaigns on new media. Previously at Excel Center for Educational Leadership (Excel PH), she built the organization from the ground up alongside its founder, and developed, ran, and evaluated seminar-workshops for public school principals in the country for two years as the founding secretariat.
She received her Bachelor of Arts in European Studies major in International Relations, and a minor in French Studies from the Ateneo de Manila University in 2014. She is currently pursuing her Master of Public Administration in the University of the Philippines-Diliman, specializing in Public Policy and Program Administration. Her research interests include data-driven policy-making and civic engagement.
Pam has had a love-hate relationship with competitive swimming since her childhood, and she is devoted to the wonders of fine arts and literature. She believes in acknowledging the greatness within ourselves, and more importantly, in the greatness in others to create the world that current and future generations deserve.
