Pam has worked with non-profit groups as far away as Rhode Island, but has always been drawn to the western way of life. She moved to a Wyoming ranch in 2002, and worked for The Nature Conservancy prior to opening a Dubois office for the Jackson Hole Land Trust. Having grown up in a small farming community in Connecticut, Pam remembers watching the countryside she loved disappear. This experience, and a life-long interest in American history and culture, has steered Pam’s career course toward protecting unique components of American heritage, including people who make their living on the land on a daily basis.
