In her free time, Pam enjoys traveling to new places and spectating at her children’s ice hockey, volleyball, soccer, baseball, and lacrosse games. An ice hockey player herself, she participates in two local women’s hockey organizations when she can. Pam loves to hike and one of her favorite places to do this is in the Fjords along the Saguenay River of northern Quebec. She spends time there with her husband and three teenagers, mingling with the local French Canadians. In winter, they dog-sled, snowshoe, and snowmobile; in summer, they hike, swim in small lakes and shell on the beach, hoping to catch glimpses of Minke or Beluga whales, and seals.
