Pam Chan was born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and came south to Virginia to attend the University of Richmond. She graduated with a degree in Math and International Studies, and, except for two and a half years in China, she’s lived in Virginia ever since. In China, she studied Mandarin and taught English while her husband worked to start up a factory for a multinational company. She saw, did, and ate some amazing things as part of that adventure.
Now she lives in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with her husband and two sons. She’s also the proud parent of a daughter studying at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She volunteers with Generations Hope, a non-profit offering parenting and life skills training, counseling, and practical support to teen moms in the Augusta region. She is invested in strengthening community and deepening relationships in her neighborhood, she enjoys cooking and baking, she is a long-time Philadelphia Eagles fan, and, if she has a free hour or two, you’ll probably find her absorbed in a well-written mystery novel set in a long-ago time or a far-away place.
