Meet Pam Crone, PSARA’s voice in Olympia
PSARA is very excited to have retained Pam Crone as our session lobbyist for the 2013 legislative session. Pam, a PSARA member, is a highly respected Olympia lobbyist who is known for her integrity, her passionate advocacy, and her wealth of knowledge about the legislative process.
Pam, besides being a mother and grandmother, is a lawyer/lobbyist. She has represented clients in Olympia for the last 12 legislative sessions. Her current clients include Legal Voice(formerly the Women’s Law Center), Washington State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Cedar River Clinics, WithinReach and the Community Health Plan and Network of Washington. She has also worked with Puget Sound SAGE and the Washington State Labor Council. Her work has focused on economic and social justice issues.
Pam is also a teacher and is currently the Distinguished Policy Advocate in Residence at the Seattle University School of Law. She taught at the University of Washington Law School Unemployment Insurance Clinic during the 1999-2000 school year and the Child and Youth Legislative Advocacy Clinic in 2008-2010. Prior to lobbying, Pam was the Attorney Director of the Unemployment Law Project. She began her professional life teaching children with developmental disabilities.
We are very excited to have a daily advocacy presence in Olympia and are particularly excited that the voice speaking for PSARA will be Pam Crone.
