Pamela Day has more than twenty-five years of Capitol Hill experience and is well-versed in all aspects of the Legislative Branch: drafting and tracking legislation, congressional oversight, constituent services, working with Executive Branch officials and day-to-day office operations and management.
Born and raised in New York, Pamela came to Washington to study at the Catholic University of America with the goal of pursuing a career in finance, but an opportunity to intern with her hometown Congressman Ben Gilman sent her down a much different path. As she handled education, health care and labor issues for the Chairman of the then House International Relations Committee and created the Congressional Child Care Caucus, she seized the opportunity to enact change and fight for the challenges and needs of working families.
Most recently Pamela served as Chief of Staff to the Congressman for All Alaska and Dean of the House, Don Young; a position she held for twelve years. During this time, she oversaw twelve bills signed into law and as Senior Political Advisor at Alaskans for Don Young, Pamela was instrumental in fundraising and strategizing which led to historic wins for the Congressman.
Pamela is a rare Hill staffer who has worked her way up through the system and performed every single job in a member’s personal office – intern, staff assistant, scheduler, press secretary, legislative assistant, legislative director and chief of staff. This makes her uniquely qualified to understand the roles each staffer fills and how best to work with them to produce results.
