Hi! I'm Pamela, and although I love my work in the mental health field, my true passion is making things happen and solving problems. I do this by using my creative skills and talents. Writing is an art form that can convey emotions, ideas, and stories in ways nothing else can. Although I love to paint and draw, writing enables me to communicate with precision and insight. I love using a palette full of words! I have written two eBooks (so far), multiple blogs, and published professional articles. Topics of great passion and expertise are mindfulness, health, wellness, psychology, and spirituality. I am familiar with SEO having several websites of my own.
