Lifelong artist returns to first love, in My Better Half
By The Jefferson Exchange Team Published January 5, 2023 at 11:16 AM PST
Pam Haunschild rose to the top of her profession, teaching organizational theory at the business schools at Stanford and Texas-Austin. It's a long way off from her original interest, art. Pam had an art scholarship in front of her when she was young, but opted for the other path.
Then she retired from teaching and moved to Oregon. Now she's creating art on a regular basis, finding the joy in returning to an old love. Pam is the focus of the latest chapter of My Better Half, an examination of late-in-life accomplishments with JPR's Vanessa Finney.
Vanessa visits with Pam about her art and her inspirations in nature.
