Gold line.

Pamela’s event management experience dates back to 2005, but her game experience goes all the way back to her first job at age 12 as a Bridge Caddy. She earned her BA in Theater from the University of North Dakota and brought her acting talents and Midwest work ethic to Los Angeles in 2004. Her love of games, including poker, continued to grow, and she teamed up with West LA Poker in 2009. By 2018, she became a co-owner of the company and helped it transition through a full rebranding and expansion to The Poker People. Today, she is happily married and a mom to three beautiful kitties. Pamela works out of the Las Vegas office as the Director of Operations, overseeing the Event Managers and scheduling team. Pamela’s skill set ranges from event organization to graphic design to coding. Her attention to detail and integrity are hallmarks of her work ethic.
