Pam is happy to offer innovative and effective content, professionally presented in an appropriate format. As a 'recovering attorney', community activist and parent, she has been involved with dozens of professional and community activities. She currently uses her education, experience and insight to craft unique, entertaining articles and posts.
For over 25 years, Pam has been writing as a lawyer, and also in support of community issues that touch her heart. Much of her work has been 'persuasive', but she has also enjoyed creating pieces in a wide variety of formats:
Legal -- Legal writing entails not just persuading the reader to accept the argument, but also telling the clients' story in a compelling and intriguing manner. A good legal brief will 'humanize' the driest client, while skillfully weaving in the science, facts and law that sell the case.
Commercial -- For business clients and charitable entities, she's written ad copy selling products and services, and soliciting donations and volunteers. Regardless of the subject of the pitch, a good advertisement offers to satisfy a need of the buyer/donor, while also triggering the emotional response necessary to compel the sale/donation. She finds this to be really fun work.
Informative -- Pam has a strong belief that reliable information triggers positive engagement. Through newsletters and articles, she's informed her community about dozens of 'need to know' issues, from selling popcorn to volunteering with disabled adults. As a grant writer, she's raised thousands of dollars by thoughtfully identifying social concerns and successfully encouraging others to help out through financial donations.
Instructional -- Great work is done by people who have great training. Pam spent years developing training materials to educate volunteers on complexities of the child welfare system. She has learned that a comprehensive training manual ensures consistency of action across cohort groups and over time, and can be an invaluable asset as a sales tool.
In terms of subject matter, she's researched and written on topics from Autism to Zeppelins. She's applied analysis and comparisons; created charts and graphs, and narrated stories from pictures. What she's really enjoyed is connecting her readers to the wide, wonderful world in which they live.
