Meet Pamela

From more than two decades of patient advocacy, Spark owner Pamela Posey understands both patient/family and clinician perspectives and how to effectively bridge between the two.

Pamela’s advocacy work is grounded in deep experience with Boston-based centers of clinical excellence and research, including Mass General Brigham, McLean Hospital, and Boston Children’s Hospital. She also served as a patient advocate and Health Care Proxy for her parents in Houston and Buffalo.

Pamela’s background in business, non-profit institutions and town government provides a vital basis for the team collaboration, creative problem-solving and client focus that is foundational to health advocacy.

Pamela identifies closely with women juggling careers, family and healthcare decision-making and is committed to changing how we value and prioritize managing our health.

Pamela is a Board Certified Patient Advocate based in Greater Boston and member of the National Association of Healthcare Advocacy (NAHAC), Massachusetts Health Care Advocates (MAHCA), Greater National Advocates (GNA), and HealthAdvocateX. She has also attended the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Patient Partnerships. Pamela is active in her community as an elected Town Meeting Member and fundraiser, advocate for sustainability and volunteer on her town’s Climate Action Committee.

Pamela’s personal advocacy story began with the unexpected and frightening diagnosis of her daughter with Type 1 diabetes at age 4. Mentored by her daughter’s first pediatric endocrinologist, she found comfort in a deeply collaborative partnership with the medical team and their mindset of unshakeable optimism. She also acquired lifetime skills keeping her daughter safe 24 hours a day that have served her in many situations as a patient advocate – a finely attuned radar for subtle shifts in health status, making decisions based on unpredictable factors, knowing when to watch and observe and when to act, pursuing answers to complex health problems.

“I know Pamelas skills and instincts, her kindness and determination, make her role as health navigator a deeply personal calling.
– P.R., Greater Boston
