Pamela Martin was born in Blue Bell, PA. At an early age, Pamela learned that her niche was art as she was the happiest when she was problem solving and creating something new.
Pamela’s interest in art resulted in a bachelor’s degree from Tyler School of Art. Shortly after she graduated from Tyler, she moved to the Norristown area when her son was born. While Pamela’s son was young, she received her Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Arcadia University. She began a career as a social worker and was employed for 20 years by Montgomery County where she helped many teens who were abused and neglected, had no positive outlet, and nowhere to go for help.
With the support of her family and friends, Pamela combined her love of arts, and interest in helping teens together to form Expressive Path to make a difference in her community.
