Reasons for being part of Avalon
The work we do at Avalon is about making a difference to the parents, guardians, grandparents and siblings we serve. My passion and drive comes from personal experience as a mother with a feeling that more could be done to improve the lives of families before, during and after an autism diagnosis. By improving the lives of families impacted by Autism we will indirectly improve the lives of those children living with autism.
Pam has currently writing a booked titled ‘Light and Shade” which provides a parental perspective on living life with a child on the autistic spectrum. Pam is dedicated to maintaining her own personal fitness and wellbeing and is currently training for her first half marathon. Pam loves to read and is passionate about all aspects of leadership development and personal growth.
