Pam’s Why: As a kid I used to catch frogs in the creek behind my house and ice skate on the pond during winter. I have always loved being close to water for recreation and rejuvenation and can’t imagine a world where access to fresh water isn’t possible. Working at TFT allows me to make a difference by protecting a natural resource that is very personal to me. And my colleagues are inspiring, too!
