About Pam - Owner, Trainer, Advanced Injector and Laser Specialist

Pam began her successful career in medicine 27 years ago, as an ICU and Trauma Flight Nurse. She later began working aside prominent plastic surgeons, focusing on facial and neck cosmetic plastic surgery, oculoplastics, body transformations, and laser skin modalities. Her fascination with lasers began almost immediately after assisting with a face lift procedure in the operating room. Pam’s passion for noninvasive procedures then became the driving force that led to her entry into the Medical Spa Arena.

With over 16 years of experience in non invasive cosmetic procedures, 8 years as the Director of The Centre PC Medical Spa, and now the CEO of Pam Chaney Aesthetics LLC, Pam has been instrumental in changing the mindset of her clients. She feels that the non invasive services in the medical Spa, are the key preventatives to anti aging. Her passion for the industry shows by striving to stay abreast of the latest in techniques, and modalities. Her artistic skill set, with injectables, have also coined her the name, “The DaVinci with a syringe.” Pam’s clients are awed by her infectious personality, compassion for everyone, and her promise to provide the very best to all.

She is a trainer for Nestle Skin Health/Galderma, the Indiana Regional Director and State Representative for the American Academy of Medical Esthetic Professionals, Sassy Magazines 2013 Michiana Woman to Watch, a member of AORN, she has been featured in USA Today, and is an advocate for the safety and clean air act in operating rooms and the Medical Spa arena. She encourages others, women and men, to be the voices of prevention and promotion of services that protect, heal and rejuvenate the skin.

What is WEI? Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative

In 2009, the College received a $245,000 Small Business Administration grant to support women’s entrepreneurship in the South Bend community, which led to the creation of WEI. The initiative was developed through the collaborative efforts of the Department of Business Administration and Economics (BUEC) and the staff of the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership (CWIL). Through WEI, which got underway in January, 2010, the College is providing Saint Mary's women students with opportunities to learn about and experience entrepreneurship. In addition, it is partnering with community businesses, nonprofits and organizations to provide a number of financial and business education services to women entrepreneurs. WEI is pronounced "we."

The Women's Entrepreneurship Initiative has made a lasting impact for Saint Mary's College students and for the South Bend and Michiana community since its inception in 2009.

Dickerson Literacy Initiatives and collaboration with the Peace Corps and Partnering for Peace

Welcome Carl Dickerson, fellow Rotarian and founder of Dickerson Literacy Initiatives, LLC (DLI).

DLI is a specialized consulting company that designs literacy projects. We work with individuals, businesses, literacy foundations, churches and civic organizations to create and develop literacy projects which benefit children. Our projects support literacy, encourage a love of reading, raise awareness, strengthen and inspire community unity through collaboration. DLI donates well written and beautifully illustrated new books to support the reading initiative set forth in each literacy project. Age and culturally appropriate titles are carefully selected and approved for donation to school libraries, classrooms and given directly to children to create home libraries.  

Carl will discuss the history of his initiatives and how collaboration with the Peace Corps Volunteers and Rotary's Partnering for Peace have allowed this mission to flourish.

The CASA Program in Elkhart County

The January 10 Noon Division meeting program will be Caitlin Cataldo, CASA Director at CAPS, who will talk about the CASA Program in Elkhart County. 

CASA
Court Appointed Special Advocates

What is a CASA?
When a child is in the juvenile court system due to abuse or neglect, a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer represents the best interest of the child in court hearings and many other areas of the child’s life. The purpose of CASA is to be the child’s voice in court, making sure children are safe, have a permanent home and have the opportunity to thrive.  Without a CASA, children may find themselves trapped in the court and child welfare system, spending their entire childhood moving from one temporary placement to another.

How does the CASA model work?
CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to advocate for children’s best interests. They stay with each case until it is closed and the child is in a safe, permanent home. Volunteers work with legal and child welfare professionals, educators and service providers to ensure that judges have all the information they need. Volunteers help judges develop a fuller picture of each child’s life. Their advocacy enables judges to make the most well-informed decision for each child.

What does a CASA volunteer do?
As a CASA volunteer, you will form a one-on-one relationship with a child to get a full picture of the case. A CASA volunteer’s work with children is one-on-one, but they do not work alone. Each volunteer is trained and supported by highly qualified CAPS staff member.

How can I become a CASA volunteer?
