In 2018, Pam completed her Master’s Degree in Ministry and Pastoral Care at CIU.

She is trained in premarital and marital counseling through Prepare/Enrich. She is also trained in level one of Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) through the Albert Ellis Institute. Throughout her time as a student, Pam has mentored students, as well as wives of graduate students.
