Pamela Shulterbrandt is originally from Rochester, NY by way of Buffalo, NY and now resides in Lithonia, GA. She is happily married to David Shulterbrant, a proud parent, and a very proud grandmother. No matter where she’s lived she always strived to make a positive community impact. As a reflection on her upbringing she now sees the purpose God has for her and her journey has just begun.
Mrs. Shulterbrandt has over 25 years of Financial and Administrative experience and is the CEO of Bookkeeping Direct, LLC. The vision came to her while working for a major financial institution in Georgia and realizing that many small business owners do not have their financial or administrative books in working order. Since inception, BKKD has offered the following services: Business Development, Bookkeeping, and various Administrative assignments.
With willingness to expand her brand in today’s economy, the company extended its efforts in developing Non-Profit Organizations. Pam feels that society has a greater responsibility to help our youth, disabled, homeless, and elderly population. She believes that everyone has a God given gift. Mrs. Shulterbrandt uses her position with BKKD to give much needed direction and hope for entrepreneurs in putting their vision in motion.
Her strong belief in core family values has led her to establishing Changing the Cycle Foundation, Inc., which targets needs of the family structure. During her time spent volunteering and mentoring our youth it has become apparent that each generation is ever-changing. She understands that society has changed the structure of FAMILY. The youth of today are faced with a lot more than their parents. The parents are now working more than one job to maintain the household and many households has only one parent. Parents are getting younger and unprepared for society, which can lead them to addiction and crime.
Mrs. Shulterbrandt believes that there are three kinds of parents:
Uninformed – The parent does not know how to be involved in their child’s life because that’s not the type of upbringing they experienced personally.
Too Busy – The parent is consumed with other issues that the parent/child relationship stops growing because it’s not given the attention it needs.
Unavailable – The parent is not mentally ready for children because they are incapable of caring for anyone but themselves.
Pam’s path has been blessed. She has been blessed to be able to work with so many people. She has meet great artist, career professionals, professional athletes, and develop many Non-Profits organizations. Pam is a loyal member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. She’s looking forward to what is ahead for Bookkeeping Direct, LLC and Changing the Cycle Foundation, Inc.
Pam’s module: Keep smiling; have faith that GOD is working it out for His Glory.
