Born in Windsor Ontario, Pamela graduated in kinesiology from the University of Waterloo in 1974 and then joined the Judy Jarvis Dance and Theatre Company of Toronto. After three with the company she accepted a position teaching modern dance and track and field at the University of Calgary.

A long time participant in dance politics, Pamela has served on the Board of Directors of The Dance In Canada Association, The Dance Committee of the Toronto Arts Council, co-authored the Canadian Dancer's Survival Manual and is currently Chair of the Judy Jarvis Dance Foundation.
