Pam has been an Edmondite since birth. She is so proud to be an Oklahoman and loves how the people of this great state pull together in times of need. While her “perfect day” would include riding her horse in a peaceful, wooded area, she loves her work as the Executive Director at Good Shepherd Clinic. She has spent over 30 years in the non-profit world and feels blessed to be a part of a ministry serving our neighbors in need. Pam loves walking through the clinic and being greeted with a smile and kind word from the close-knit community of staff, volunteers, and patients here at the clinic. She's proud to be apart of an organization full of people who care so deeply for each other and all of our patients. In 2020, Pam was named one of Oklahoma's Most Admired CEO's from The Journal Record.

As a student at OU School of Dentistry always rounding up her classmates to go volunteer at Good Shepherd, Jeanie never imagined that after years in private practice she would get the chance to lead the dental side of this ministry. Along with being passionate about dental health, Dr. Bath is passionate about patients’ medical health and seeing those two intertwine in comprehensive care. Dr. Bath is always full of new ideas and ways to make those ideas a reality. She always has a smile on her face and is often the reason for the smile on the faces of our staff, volunteers and patients!
Jennie served as a volunteer at Good Shepherd for four years before coming on staff, giving her a deep appreciation and love for the work done here at the clinic. Her years of service are seen in all the progress that has taken place in order for our pharmacy to become the fully stocked certified charitable pharmacy that it is today. She claims that the patients’ appreciation for all that they receive is worth the work. Her love for the Thunder and the OKC Redhawks just makes it all the better that she gets to work at Good Shepherd and in downtown OKC. In 2020, Jennie was recognized as an Outstanding Preceptor from the University of Oklahoma College of Pharmacy in recognition of the outstanding contributions she has made to the educational development of future pharmacists by demonstrating high standards of professionalism, ethics, and pharmacy practice. We are so thankful for all Jennie does in order to provide pharmaceutical services to our patients.
