Career Management Professional & Military Life Expert
Author, Freelance Writer & Motivational Speaker

Pamela McBride is the co-author of two books: The Mocha Manual to Military Life: A Savvy Guide for Wives, Girlfriends, and Female Service Members with Kimberly Seals-Allers (HarperCollins, June 2009) and Work It, Girl! The Black Woman’s Guide to Professional Success, with Lorraine Morris Cole.

Time and time again Pamela has enjoyed knowing the difference between working and working it. She parlayed many years of experience in the career counseling field into the world of writing in the mid 90's. As a freelance writer and editorial consultant she quickly racked up hundreds of internationally published articles writing about job search skills and strategies, professional development, education planning, parenting and military life. Additionally, she has covered unrelated topics with ease including women’s health, lifestyle, home, beauty, and profiles.

For several years Pamela was a frequent contributor to the “Work and Wealth” section of Essence magazine, Black Collegian, Upscale, and Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Federal Times supplements. Her work has appeared in Black Enterprise, Military Spouse magazine, and various online publications. She has been a columnist for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, has been a freelance writer for, and currently freelances with, Operation Homefront’s Online Community of Military Wives and Women in Uniform. She has had TV and radio interviews and has accepted invitations as guest speaker to share her insight on professional, education, and personal development. And believe it or not, writing has never been her full-time job! It is simply a passion she discovered in her late twenties and continues to Work It, Girl! as she brainstorms her next book ideas.
