Pamela Hect

Operations & Finance Director
Pronouns: She/Her

Pamela is inspired by the joyful exuberance of the chickadee and is over the moon to be part of the WAS family where she can serve others who bring the spirit and love of nature to life. As the Operations & Finance Director, Pamela is a servant leader who thrives at the intersection of building genuine relationships and organizational excellence.

Although her roots and life story began on the islands of Guam, Hawaii, and Okinawa, Pamela has called the Pacific Northwest her home for almost 30 years. She has a BA in Accounting from Seattle University and MPA from the University of Washington. She is also a CPA with over 25 years of experience in accounting, finance and business operations in Healthcare, Financial Services, and Media & Telecommunications.

Pamela is most alive striking a strong yoga pose, taking long walks with her dog Piper, and exploring the local trails with her husband Jason and son Caleb. Her mindfulness practice includes daily meditation, sipping tea, inspirational reading, and art journaling. She is grateful for the privilege of working in service and stewardship of nature’s abundance.
