Although PAMP event manager Iris Safar just started with the organization in January, she already has planned and executed PAMP’s first ever Funtastic Winter Arts & Crafts Day event and is playing a large part in organizing the upcoming Rummage Sale as well as smaller events, including organizing catering, activities, decorating and ensuring each event is comfortable for both parents and children alike.
A Bay Area native, Iris resides in Saratoga and says her favorite part of her job is seeing kids having fun and parents mingling at PAMP events. “At PAMP, I mostly like the energy of kids and their amusement and curiosity about EVERYTHING. It’s adorable and helps me remember to enjoy life like kids do,” she says. Going forward she wants to “make sure all events are always organized, well-planned and logistically flow well.”
Despite having minimal knowledge of PAMP before applying, Iris says she was impressed with the organization after doing some additional research and excited about the opportunity to help create meaningful memories for PAMP families.
In addition to being an avid yogi and certified hot yoga instructor, Iris is passionate about skincare and beauty, running an Instagram blog – just for fun - called “Beauty and the Buddah.” She enjoys being aunty to her friend’s children and as a child loved Saturday morning cartoons like the Jetsons, Flintstones and Nickelodeon classic shows such as Doug and Rugrats.
