                                                                    Pam Checkley  -  Office Director

Office Director overseeing customer service, billing, communications and staff activities, in CEO's absence.

Pam thinks nothing of backing up the CEO when asked to do so, to the lists of many tasks that she does                                                                        to help Empty Bowl Pet Food Pantry run as effectively as she does for Trademark Landscaping.

Pam  also oversees activities for our younger volunteers under 16. Whether the group is parents with their children or  various youth groups,  her skills in bridging across the generations to feel the gift of their volunteer effort impacts generation that experiences  how their efforts can make  a difference in someone else's life, (two legged and four legged!)!

In addition to her efficiency with details and communications involved in running our agency, Pam has a knack for holding a special role in our services.  She reminds us about the individual stories and relationships that we strive to enhance, building community by bringing hearts together, seeing past disabilities to the potential that every soul brings~ whether they are client or volunteer.
