Self-proclaimed “Rock Hound” Pamela Huizenga brings a laid back, Florida vibe with her wherever she goes. As highlighted in a previous blog post, her general demeanor belies the fact that she lives with a combined family of 7 kids. While this fact is impressive, I’m even more impressed when I see Pamela at the show, at the end of the last day, and she’s still smiling and laughing…and standing! We caught up with her to ask her how she does it!
