The bulk of Dr. Pamela’s career has been spent in higher education, where she has twelve years of
professional experience. As a student affairs professional, she received training in suicide prevention, motivational interviewing, and substance abuse counseling. After completing her master’s degree in College Student Affairs, Dr. Pamela pursued her Ph.D. to better position herself to help develop leadership skills in others, particularly with the desire to help people live fulfilling, purpose-driven lives.
Dr. Pamela’s mission as a writer, speaker, and educator is grounded in a philosophy that challenges each of us to take responsibility for our own actions in all situations. Empowerment starts within. Whether we are exiting an unhealthy relationship, rebuilding one that has potential, or striving to reach a new level of achievement, there is always a need to look within and determine what we may need to do differently to take hold of a more fulfilling life. Each book, poem, scholarly article Dr.
Pamela Antoinette writes addresses this need - and her workshops and presentations show her participants how to get there.
