Pamela Foster (Student)

Master of Public Administration (MPA) Candidate, Walden University

I chose to pursue my MPA after years of having a career as a social worker. In this role, it was my responsibility to help individuals gain access to valuable public services such as mental health/substance treatment, crisis prevention, food, shelter, and emergency assistance.

Frequently seeing the populations I served, deal with constant day to day struggles, followed by their normal daily challenges, I realized that I held a passion for advocacy and public policy, and that I wanted to help people on an organizational level rather than on an individual level.

I look forward to my future in public administration and welcome the opportunity to network with my fellow public administrators. You may contact me at my LinkedIn at:
