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 15, spending summers alongside her grandfather at the local nursery/garden center. When the Olympics came to Atlanta in 1996, she helped install and provide ongoing maintenance of the landscape at the athlete’s welcome center, where she witnessed excellence and an elite environmental experience. Pam’s passion for the industry led her to a nursery management position in South Carolina for seven years and eventually back to Atlanta in 2003, where she went back to the University of Georgia to work on her horticulture degree. She started Plants Creative in 2005.
Pam attributes the growth of the business to working hard, treating people well, fostering relationships with people who share similar values and creating a consistent and focused brand message and identity. Pam enjoys weekends in the North Georgia mountains with her partner, spending summers on the lake and cooler seasons in front of warm fires with great 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.
