Pamela Kelly Wetzell

Denise WAN

Pamela Kelly Wetzell joined UWCSEA Dover as a University Advisor in 2010 and has enjoyed the challenge of leading the University Advising Centre at East since 2012. She is well-engaged in life at UWCSEA, holding roles including Assistant Boarding Houseparent, supervisor of activities such as Law Society and Medical Society and member of the Staff Scholarship Committee. Pamela has presented at numerous college counselling conferences, including the International Association of College Admissions Counselors (IACAC) Summer Conference; the CIS Forum on Admissions & Guidance and the EARCOS-CIS Institute on Higher Education & Guidance. As both a faculty member of IACAC’s Pre-Conference Institute and an IACAC Scholar Mentor, Pamela has provided training and mentorship to college counsellors who are new to the profession or from under-resourced high schools around the world. Pamela has been an outside reader of international applications for University of California, Los Angeles and is active in the college counsellor network across the UWC movement.

Originally from New York City, Pamela earned a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. She clerked for a federal district judge in San Diego and practised securities litigation with Shearman & Sterling in San Francisco before moving to Asia more than 20 years ago where, out of sheer necessity, she founded a small international school in Phuket for her own children and their friends. She acted as Director of that school for 11 years, earning a Master’s degree in Human Development and Educational Leadership from Pacific Oaks College along the way.

Pamela has a highly global family with a husband whose Project Management business is based in Phuket and daughters who live in Melbourne and San Francisco. Because of this, she spends a large portion of her holidays in the air. Having raised her family in a multicultural environment, Pamela feels strongly aligned with UWC’s mission and believes in the transformative power of education.
