Pamela wanted to be a doctor when she was at school but eventually did a Human Sciences degree which she loved. After a spell working for Sainsburys she went into Accountancy after she moved to Dublin. She describes herself as having 'itchy feet' and thinks she might like to run her own business in the future and maybe "grow some vegetables and have some chickens... I think there will be lots of phases in my life and that's something I look forward to rather than fear".
