Miller, Miller & Canby is pleased to announce that Pamela Nkwantabisah has joined the firm’s Land Use and Zoning practice group as a land use planner.

Ms. Nkwantabisah’s professional journey began at the Lands Commission Surveying and Mapping Division in Accra, Ghana. There she assisted in land survey and demarcation of land for various land use purposes. Her passion for urban planning extends beyond her home country, as evidenced by her year long experience with the Maryland- National Capital Park and Planning Commission- Montgomery County Planning Department in Wheaton. She began as a Planning intern II in the Upcounty Division, where she actively participated in community outreach efforts. She assisted in visioning workshops and facilitated the Fairland and Briggs Chaney Photo Contest, and also created informative maps, designed posters and directional signs, and shared Montgomery County resources with residents of Fairland and Briggs Chaney through follow-up communication.

Building on her internship experience, she progressed to become a Graduate Assistant with the Midcounty Division, where she played a pivotal role in the Great Seneca Plan: Connecting Life  and Science community engagement efforts, spearheading the collection and analysis of data from partnering organizations. Additionally, she made significant contributions to the Wheaton Downtown study and the Great Seneca Plan, by managing and updating 3D models in ArcGIS, and illustrating existing buildings and new developments in both areas.

“We are delighted to welcome Pamela as a valued member of our team in the Land Use and Zoning practice group,” said Jody Kline, firm principal and head of the practice. “Her experience and contributions in Montgomery County, and beyond, has prepared her to serve our clients throughout the county and the state.”

Ms. Nkwantabisah holds a Master of Community Planning degree from the University of Maryland-College Park, where she gained a comprehensive understanding of various planning concepts and methodologies. Prior to her master’s program, she was awarded a Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship and completed her Bachelor of Science in Geography at the University of Pécs in Pécs, Hungary. Her undergraduate studies provided her with a solid foundation in community development, project planning and management, GIS and regional policies.

“I am committed to leaving a lasting impact by actively contributing and tirelessly working towards the creation of sustainable and inclusive communities where people and businesses can thrive and prosper,” Ms. Nkwantabisah said.
