As a long-time member, PAMP’s Operations Manager, Becky Genauer, is familiar with all of the offerings and events the organization has to offer. After moving to Menlo Park from New York in 2015, Becky found herself desperately searching for a parent community and with three boys aged 4-9 at that time, she was longing for parental support. PAMP fit the bill.
Becky spent 10 years as a family nurse practitioner before stepping away to raise her sons. With her sons, Ryder (11), Cole (8) and Jed (6), now older and actively involved in soccer, among other sports, Becky decided to return to the workforce and knew the operations manager role would be a good fit for her skillset.
“I love this role at PAMP because it allows me to work and be a mom at the same time,” she says. “Operations is a perfect fit for me as organization, precision and efficiency are three of my favorite words. My day-to-day tasks involve community outreach, admin, being a liaison and making PAMP a more efficient, organized business so that it can do what so many people love – bring the parent community together!”
Becky says she hopes to provide more opportunities, offerings and information to PAMP members while increasing engagement among parents. She plans to use her analytical nature (her husband, a singer/songwriter, musician and tech marketer, is the creative one) to achieve these goals. As she continues to ramp up her job duties, Becky has been overwhelmed with the support she has received within the organization.
“I just experienced Family Day and loved interacting with the members AND sponsors,” she says. “It’s so nice to finally meet people face-to-face after speaking with them at length via email/phone. I have to give a shout out to the board and staff here at PAMP, too. It’s such a welcoming group of women and moms and a positive work environment creates a more successful business.”
While growing up in New York, Boston, Toronto and London, Becky says she loved listening to Wham, watching Family Ties and the movie The Sure Thing. Currently, her favorite kid-friendly album is Jerry Garcia: Not for Kids Only and the family film A Dog’s Purpose. When not working, Becky enjoys skiing, cycling, hiking, volunteering at her kids’ school and organizing, even going as far as to consider starting her own home organization business.
