Pam Welch

Sport has taught me confidence, persistence and teamwork.

A native Oregonian, Pam grew up in scenic Central Oregon. Her favorite childhood sport was Alpine skiing, which she started at six years old. Thanks to her mother’s part-time job at a local ski resort, she had a season pass early on and skied frequently. In Pam’s words, this opportunity “changed her world.”

Pam is an avid and accomplished athlete, and enjoys basketball, football, baseball, soccer and golf – just to name a few. She has also completed eight marathons, 19 Hood-to-Coasts, five Portland-to-Coasts and 17 Cycle Oregons.

Aside from physical activities, Pam likes to travel, cook and read – and also spend quality time with her 19-pound cat.
