Born and raised in St Charles, MO, Pam moved to Kansas City to attend University of Missouri-Kansas City where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene while playing volleyball on an athletic scholarship. Pam worked in several dental offices in and around the Independence/Kansas City area for 27 years. After that time, she decided to make a midlife career change.
Pam attended Wellspring School of Allied Health (formally MTTI) in 2010 in pursuit of her certificate in Massage Therapy. While in school, she was drawn to the studies involving neuromuscular therapy, myofascial release, medical massage and deep tissue work. As fate would have it and prior to finishing her studies in Massage, Dr. Gray asked her to join the team. Prior to that, she had been a patient of Dr. Gray's since 2008. Three weeks before the last day of class, she took the National Boards and passed with flying colors.
Pam has always been fascinated with the body and its movements, whether it is from cleaning the house to 100 mile weekend bicycle rides. The body needs to move and with a purpose. Pam is a firm believer in the combination of massage therapy and chiropractic care. Pam knew she wanted to work in a medical setting and with athletes. She works side by side with Dr. Gray and Dr. Josh, helping them fulfill their patient's needs for optimal health. She also works alongside them in treating the Kansas City Mavericks Hockey Team. Pam is continually learning by attending Continuing Education courses with hands on experience; learning new techniques to help our patients achieve their health goals.
Pam and her husband enjoy cycling long distances and day hikes on the wonderful trails we have here in the Midwest. However, most of their time is spent with their two grandchildren, sharing with them experiences they shared with their own daughter when she was young. They hope they can teach their grandchildren to love the wonders of nature as much as they enjoy it.
