Meet WoW Member, Pam Gill!


Pam has worked with Kearns Improvement District for twenty-six years. Currently, she is the general manager of the facility.  Pam’s work at Kearns Improvement District includes overseeing the functions of the District to meet the needs of the residents they serve. Pam is also serving on the Women of Water Board of Directors as the Past President.


 

 For Pam, one of the most challenging aspects of her job is securing resources for future needs of residents.  Water technology could make this challenge more accomplishable.  “(If I could change anything in the water industry) it would be to help water reuse become more economically feasible.”

Pam has a special appreciation for water. “Water is life.  I have been blessed to be a part of the water industry and to have the opportunities it has afforded me.”  Many of the opportunities Pam has come from the encounters with people.   Women of Water encourages these professional encounters.  Being a WoW member is important to Pam because it gives a chance for women in the water industry to network and talk about the issues that are most important to us.  “It also means younger women coming into our industry will have a professional organization they can participate in to enhance their skills, find mentors, and learn more about the industry,” she says.

Pam’s advice: “Have a passion for what you do.  Care about the people you serve.  Work hard to make a positive difference in the industry.”

Her favorite water spot in Utah: Flaming Gorge.
