Pamela Bennett was born in Coalinga, an infinitesimal town in the Central Valley of California. Though she maintains contact with her small town roots, for the last forty-eight years Pam's home has been in the greater Bay Area of Northern California. Pam graduated from U.C.Berkeley in 1977 with a major in physical education, which segued nicely into nursing school and a nursing career. Pam began working in neonatal nursing directly after nursing school, and never changed her focus or hospital. After thirty years, the repetitious nature of most hospital dilemmas became increasingly obvious and more irritating. In order to overcome aggravation and avoid pessimism, the Guerrilla Nursing project was born. Pam's hobbies, besides writing, include construction of rock projects (stone benches, retaining walls, etc.), forest maintenance (pruning and trimming), and genealogy.
