Raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Pamela has learned to appreciate all Mother Nature has to offer. However, after having several feet of snow piled on her car and staring down moose in her front yard, she decided to head for warmer weather. Pamela began her trek south, settling in Seattle, where she graduated from the University of Washington. During that time, she reported for the UW Daily, interned at KCPQ TV, and was a news assistant at KOMO TV. After graduation, Pamela began reporting for KNDO TV, the NBC affiliate in Yakima, Washington. Desiring an even warmer climate, she headed to Fresno.
