Pam and her family at Ebright Creek Park
I'm Pamela Stuart, mother of two, senior program manager in customer and partner advocacy at Microsoft with a BS in Mechanical Engineering and a concentration in Economics from the University of Maryland. With 25 years of experience in consulting and at Microsoft, I’ve used my technical acumen, communication skills, and project management expertise to consistently deliver results.
After accepting a job with Microsoft, we relocated here from the Washington DC area almost 15 years ago. We fell in love with Sammamish and have lived and raised our children here ever since. We love the community and being involved with our children, their schools, and activities. I’ve served as president of the Parent Teacher Organization, coached basketball through the Boys and Girls club, and served on the board of Eastlake Little League. I also train and teach martial arts with my children here in Sammamish where I recently earned a black belt in both Arnis and Tae Kwon Do. Our investment in the community runs deep with my husband owning a successful small business here, a music studio where he provides private music lessons, and he is the controller of a Sammamish based non-profit, Athletes for Kids.
My priorities focus on the sustainability of our growth plan that balances development with infrastructure improvements and protecting our natural resources. This includes attracting diverse businesses so Sammamish residents can work and play where they live; reducing traffic through the city and increasing our transportation options, including public and private partnerships; and investing in senior services to support our retired residents. I will work to ensure the Sammamish City Council uses the ideals of stewardship, caring, and inclusion as our guiding principles.
While we have many challenges in the coming years, I believe we also have great opportunity to keep Sammamish the special place it is today and continue to improve our city for us and for our children. As a mom, I want my kids to be proud to be from Sammamish and to love coming home once they venture out on their own.
