Pam, who grew up as an athlete and plant lover, earned the nickname "Plants" from her teammates during her collegiate volleyball years. She began working in the green industry at the age of 13, spending Indiana summers working in cornfields before joining her grandfather at the local nursery/garden center, where she remained throughout her high school years. After moving to South Carolina for college, Pam’s passion for the green industry continued, allowing her to work for a summer at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics before settling into a nursery management position for seven years in Greenville, South Carolina. In 2003, she left South Carolina to begin an account management position for a commercial landscape company in Atlanta. In 2005, she decided to go back to school, working on her horticulture degree at the University of Georgia, and at the same time, Plants Creative Landscapes was born.
Pam loves being a business owner and entrepreneur. Her passion is connecting people who believe nature is where we go in pursuit of lasting memories and strengthening relationships. Her team is united in the purpose of creating and caring for beautiful outdoor spaces that are reflections of those who live and play in them. In 2021, Pam expanded Plants Creative into the North Georgia mountains, opening a 2nd location in Blue Ridge, GA, where she also lives full time.
In addition to growing Plants Creative, Pam enjoys spending time in service to both state and national green industry associations. She is on the board of directors for The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) as well as Georgia’s Urban Ag Council (UAC), committed to promoting and advancing green industry professionalism. Outside of work, she enjoys traveling, summers spent on the lake, and falls gathered around warm fires with family and friends.
Plants Creative is proud to support Chap's Chow Rescue, Pam's Charities for Birthdays choice, by making an annual donation on her behalf. They are a small but dedicated group of volunteers who are passionate about saving chow chows. Pam and her partner have been loved by three dogs who have been rescued by Mike and his team.
