Pam Summa graduated from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in printmaking in 1981. She has been a waitress, a muralist, a gardener, and a fake-blood wrangler, among other things. She became an academic editor while working as a “temporary indefinite” at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. She became a coach when someone started paying her for the advice she was handing out in the anthropology department (still at Harvard). She currently lives in Seattle.
