Pam is an education technology specialist at Putnam-Northern Westchester BOCES, and has years of experience in IT and web design.  She was instrumental in creating Project Code Spring, a coding and STEM program at the Desmond-Fish Public Library, including the planning and developing of their Innovation and Learning Center.

Pam is also an ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) -certified instructor.  ISTE is a nonprofit organization that serves educators interested in using technology in education.

Pam worked as a research assistant for Lila Rajabion, Ph.D., investigating cybersecurity issues surrounding the prevalence of remote working during COVID-19.  She examines how to identify where breaches occur, their impact, and techniques to prevent future attacks.  Another research interest is related to Pam’s passion for how assistive technology can help English language learners succeed and thrive in the public school system.  Professor Rajabion has been guiding and supporting Pam's own research on linguistic segregation in public schools and how it can be mediated with assistive technologies.
