Pam Covarrubias: 

Pam is dynamically skilled as a Liberation Business Coach, EFT Practitioner, Podcaster, and Recovering Procrastinator. She primarily spends her time elevating first-generation business owners by helping them remove the shame around making money and connecting to their inner voice so they can create liberated business practices.
She dreams of co-creating a future where work supports everyone without glorifying productivity and by honoring our inner energy seasons. Pam’s approach is a dance between practical success strategy and intuitive personal discovery that helps humans stay true to their unique story as we decolonize business practices.

Pam’s goal is to remove the damages Calladita Culture™️ has instilled in first-generation humans in the United States. A topic she explores in her weekly podcast Cafe con Pam, staying quiet and submissive is not a stance she supports.

Pam guides her clients to honor their heritage while leveraging the resiliency they’ve built as they’ve navigated existing in two cultures.

Pam is grounded in the teachings of mother earth, her mother and grandmothers’ wisdom, as well as technically trained in Clinical EFT. She holds a Life Coaching Certification, Crystal Healing Practitioner Certification. Pam is also rooted in practical knowledge from her BFA, certificate in Women in Entrepreneurship by Cornell University, and additional business trainings she’s attended.

She is honored to have been named one of the best Latinx Podcast to listen to by Oprah in 2020 and 2021. When Pam isn’t guiding her clients to create liberated business models, you can find her drawing, getting lost in the woods with her partner David and dog Thor.
