After the horrific and deadly floods of 2016 and 2018 that devastated Ellicott City’s Main Street, Pam was a leader in the cleanup, advocacy and revival of the beloved and historic town. She worked tirelessly to record the process, perseverance, and personality of Historic Ellicott City and it’s people who work, live, and visit there. She produced videos and photos from the scene, documenting the experience and sharing it with all. She was able to illustrate the purpose and importance of the town by focusing on the people and their efforts. Yes, Ellicott City is charming and historic, but Pam has always believed it’s the people who continue to put the beautiful town on the map.

“Each Ellicott City business that suffered through the 2016 and 2018 floods will always remember the immeasurable generosity and support from so many in our region. Together, with their help, we were able to rebuild a stronger commUNITY each time,” says Pam. “It was a lesson in values that reminds me every day that we can be a powerful force for the betterment of our community when we work together. While as a business person I want to excel at my craft and deliver an exceptional experience to my clients, I am reminded that most often my greatest contribution is what I give back to my community.”
