One of Pam’s professional bios shares:

Pamela is currently managing Trefler & Sons. She came to the organization after spending twenty years in the investment banking business and seven years as President of the Trefler Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by she and her husband. Pam's extensive background in finance and management is allowing the studio to grow and carry on the traditions established over eighty years ago. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Massachusetts and holds a Master's Degree from Harvard University.

Pam’s Union & Fifth bio shares:

Pam escaped investment banking to become a teacher in urban Boston, but more than a teaching career was launched. When circumstances allowed, she became a full time philanthropist. Union & Fifth blends her entire career into one big website - plus, it gives her an easy way to make room in her closet to keep shopping (she encourages you to do the same).
