About Us

Pamela Miles, Founder

In November 2016, Pamela was introduced to a Canadian early-stage medicinal cannabis investor, just as cannabis was legalized in Massachusetts. Her curiosity was sparked, and she began investigating and researching cannabis topicals for women’s health and wellness. Pamela soon realized that while many products were developed for and marketed to women, there was very little peer-reviewed research to support the claims being made. Any research that did exist wasn’t specifically related to women. 

She founded Apothercare — to increase awareness and funding for scientific research conducted for women, by women.

Pamela spent her early career researching and advocating for quality affordable childcare and living wages for childcare professionals. As a community activist, she has served on the boards of local education funds and chaired public-school funding initiatives. A specialist in Autism Spectrum Disorders, she serves as a volunteer Surrogate Special Needs Parent, advocating for educational services for children in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families. She has been a Community College Instructor and was most recently the Director of The Keys to Degrees Program, a two-generation college program for single parents and their children.  

Pamela holds a BA in economics and sociology from Wheaton College — when it was a women’s college — an MS in Administration from Wheelock College, and completed a post-graduate certificate in Autism Studies at Lesley University.
