Pamela Campbell has been a lecturer at Boston University since 1999.  After years of work with psychiatric patients, including running an Outward Bound-inspired group therapy program at the McLean Hospital, she transitioned to computer work while working on her Masters degree at Bentley University in CIS.  Early in her career she participated in the development of the first computerized databases and information systems at the McLean Hospital. Later, she worked with the US and Canadian governments through MITRE, where she developed a Maturity Matrix for use in evaluating large database development efforts.  

She has 30 years of work experience in software development, large database design, and eventually many years as a manager developing and implementing training programs for technical instructors for BEA Systems (now ORACLE). 

One of her most rewarding assignments was to design and develop the project to upgrade the AMVER system (  AMVER, sponsored by the United States Coast Guard, is a unique, computer-based, and voluntary global ship reporting system used worldwide by search and rescue authorities to arrange for assistance to vessels in distress at sea. 

She also conducts training and development with the remote-work company Bridging Distance, addressing the needs and interest of public and private entities in helping managers to develop skills in directing diverse teams, especially those with hybrid work arrangements.  Her goal is to assist leaders and potential leaders in addressing the often conflicting needs expressed by those in hybrid environments. 

When not teaching or consulting she is happy breeding and handling her Nubian dairy goats and Suffolk Punch draft horses on her farm.
