Pamela has a Doctorate in Civil Engineering and Masters of Architecture from the University of Cincinnati, a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Purdue University, and a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Vanderbilt University.

We expect that Pamela will continue to move the PtD Initiative forward and with your help continue its impact.
