Pamela started doing makeup and dancing Hawaiian and Jazz on Stage when she was 9 years old. At the young age of 13 Pamela decided she wanted to become a movie star. Since M O V I E S T A R was not in the Yellow Pages and modeling was, she became a model instead.

Pam won 2 out of three categories. Photography and Commercial. Back to Edmonton to get ready to move to Manhattan. January 1977 she moved to New York City for one month to meet Wilhelmina and establish her modeling career. Then on to Toronto one year to get a visa. Pamela headed back to stay in Manhattan for the next nine years.
With experience and her own line of makeup, Parker headed home to Edmonton to start her business, called Pamela Parker Cosmetics – Image Consultant, makeup artist and hair stylist.

Who knew Parker would become on overnight success after 32 years of trying. Her dream of becoming a movie star finally came true. She now has credits in several movies, including ‘Intern Academy’ starring Dave Thomas and Dan Ackroyd, which was released in theatres in 2005.
