    Pam’s work style is down to earth and friendly. She loves teaching and coaching. She also likes taking a subject that many people don’t think they will enjoy and making it fun! Pam hopes that at the end of working on a project with her, clients feel more accomplished and more comfortable with their financials.

    She has been teaching in the Accounting & Finance Department at UW-Eau Claire since the fall of 2016. Prior to teaching, Pam was a CPA in the audit department at Ernst & Young in Minneapolis. She also held a variety of positions in the corporate world. Most of her professional career was spent doing small business consulting as a partner in the consulting firm ResourceAbility. Consulting gave her the opportunity to apply her business experience to helping other small businesses and start-up companies. Pam said, “My specialty was in helping small business owners understand what financial results are telling them about their businesses.”
