2019 Woman of Vision honoree – Pamela Hess
Pam Hess has been the Executive Director of the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Growth and Agriculture since March 2013. She came to Arcadia from journalism.
A career national security journalist, Pam covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the Pentagon and CIA with the Associated Press and United Press International. After a brief foray into national politics as a communications director on Capitol Hill, Pam returned to her first love – food and sustainable farms.
In 2011, she took the helm of a local food and wine magazine that celebrated sustainable food and farming in the Capitol Foodshed and, in the course of it, met and fell in love with Arcadia. She brings to Arcadia a deep commitment to its mission, a large and expanding network of farmers and food advocates, and a great reputation within the sustainable food community.
