Pam then moved into a unique role in the transportation risk management sector, dedicated to coaching high-level claims examiners and paralegals, addressing catastrophic and other complex matters, supporting the Knight-Swift family of companies and its captive insurance company, Mohave Transportation Insurance Company. Pam joined the American Trucking Associations (ATA) in 2022, where she works to advance the interests of the trucking industry on a wide range of public policy and regulatory issues.
