Pamela is a professional dancer and coach who has had Parkinson’s disease for over 20 years. Her personal experience of PD combined with her keen knowledge of the body derived from dance training gives her a unique position from which to analyze an individual’s physical functioning and to imagine creative solutions to the problems posed by PD. Interested in finding as many ways as possible to counter PD’s challenges, she experiments with a variety of approaches in her lab: cuing systems, music, dance, athletic drills, imagery and physical strategies, which together offer concrete tools to improve her students mobility and lives. Her innovative approach has achieved widespread recognition and made her a sought-after teacher and speaker in the PD community, both in the U.S. and abroad. She has been invited to present her work at some of the most forward-thinking medical institutions in the country and at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th World Parkinson’s Congresses, the 2nd Parkinson’s Congress of Japan, the 2015 EXPO in Milan, Italy and the 2016 American Congress of Rehabilitative Medicine.
