Pamela Burke-

Pamela Burke grew up as a DK – a deacon’s kid. She was not like horror story DK’s or Pks – a preacher’s kid – who did completely the opposite of their parents. She was, however, obediently rebellious. That meant Pam respected her parents, did what her elders told her to do, and respected authority, but if she felt contrary to them she put her foot down and did what she wanted to do how she wanted to do it.

Pam took the same approach to losing weight. While some in the weight loss industry and food industry make it their mission to sell consumers on quick fixes, losing weight fast without exercising plans, and fooling people into believing that sugar laden food products are healthy by plopping words like “All natural”, “Low fat”, or “Organic” on the package, Pam refused to fall prey to such misleading tactics.

She lost a significant amount of weight being obediently rebellious. She rebuked the notion of quick fixes and false advertisement while being obedient to making losing weight a priority in her life. Pam did it by being consistent, being an informed consumer, and understanding why she gained weight in the first place.

Pam uses her experiences and knowledge to help others follow the same path. She shares what she knows via her blog, canwilldone.com, a website dedicated to sharing advice on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle and helping people change their mind, attitude, way of life, and body. Pam strives to get people to live a can-do attitude in every area of their lives, thus allowing them to change their self-doubts, fears, circumstances, and struggles into positive opportunities.

Pam is also a speaker. She speaks on topics such as creating opportunities, changing mindsets, and living a healthy lifestyle, and to parents and students about the messages they are missing related to attending college. In addition to speaking to young people about college and education, she also serves as a mentor and provides scholarships to college students.

For the record, Pam does all of the above as her side hustle. She has worked in corporate America for twenty-five years. Always willing to sit on a panel or speak on creating opportunities with work colleagues, she has been graced with the unofficial title of “Good Corporate Citizen.” Her daily functions also include helping others, but by way of helping technically with devising more efficient processes and providing data solutions.
