Pamela recently worked as a CHOICES Care Coordinator with a well-known health care insurance organization, assessing the needs of patients eligible for long-term care service and support (LTSS) and coordinating their care. Pamela accomplished a leadership position with a highly noted psychiatric facility for almost a decade. In her nursing career within the acute setting of hospitals she has dedicated herself to mentoring and training new hire nurses.
