Episode 9: Kama Bethel Pierce
Kama Bethel Pierce, who is entering her third year as a member of Planned Parenthood South Atlantic Board of Trustees, was raised in New Jersey by two professor parents who taught her the value of education and civic duty.
She received her BA in English at Georgetown University in Washington, DC and went onto Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago, IL where she received her juris doctorate in 1994. After graduation, Kama was a staff attorney and clerk for a Judge in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and an assistant public defender in Pennsylvania.
She has been a law professor, an associate dean at a law school, an admissions and marketing director, a development director, and a COO. Kama has three children whom she raised in Charlotte with her husband, Joe.
Kama spoke with us about women’s reproductive health and related current events, including attempts to limit access to abortion across the nation. Charlotte has a place in the national conversation: Planned Parenthood South Atlantic will open new health center just outside of Uptown this summer. The new, state-of-the art health and education center will have more than 10,000 square feet for expanded client services, education and administrative offices.
