Pamela Kliment grew up in New York City and moved to Seattle in 1980, eventually graduating from the University of Washington with degrees in Botany and Landscape Architecture. She has worked for the Seattle Parks Department since 1998. Pam’s work at the Parks Department introduced her to the Homeless Remembrance Project Committee, and relationships developed there led to a greater awareness and concern for the challenges faced by homeless people. In 2009, Pam focused on Nickelsville for a 24-hour photo challenge for Photography Center Northwest. This led to an ongoing commitment to the vision of Nickelsville and to the people who live there. Never much of a “joiner”, Pam finds herself involved in several communities and was overheard saying in regard to Real Change, “I want to be a part of it!!!” Her local vendors are Terry Cunningham and Tricia Sullivan. Pam joined the Real Change Board of Directors in 2012.
