Pam McPherson - Liveaboard Lifestyle - Palau
Pam will have plenty of stories about what it is like to be part of a livaboard in one of diving's paradises. If you have an interest in Palau, if you have an interest in liveaboard's, or if you just have an interest in diving, you will want to be at this presentation! LIVEABOARD LIFESTYLE - PALAU Have you ever dreamed of ditching the corporate doldrums for a full time gig in the SCUBA Industry? Come hear what it's really like to work as a crew member and Photo Pro on the Palau Aggressor. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - BIO Pam McPherson has been a mermaid her whole life but officially “dove” in when she got her Open Water Certification in 1993. She is a Master SCUBA Diver Trainer (MSDT) and has 1801 logged dives. In 2004, she left her career in Information Technology to pursue her underwater dreams full time on the Nekton Pilot live-aboard in Belize. After a few harrowing rescues and helicopter lifts, Pam upgraded to the Aggressor Fleet in Kona, Hawaii where she worked as the resident Photo Professional. Pam completed her SCUBA tenure on the Palau Aggressor in Micronesia, leading dives in strong currents on the Blue Corner where she helped guests use reef hooks to suspend themselves mid water column to get close up and personal with gray, black tip, and whale sharks. Pam is now back in Chicago working as a Management Consultant at a company called “Point B” where she leads large IT Projects. The best part about working at Point B is that the company’s life-work balance culture allows Pam to volunteer at the Shedd Aquarium Caribbean Reef every Friday morning and take several dive trips a year. Pam also has a passion for Nudibranchs (underwater Sea Slugs also known as the “Butterflies of the Ocean”).
