Alison Lee is PAMP’s development coordinator. She directs the sponsorship and business discount programs. Her job involves coordinating sponsor advertising in the newsletter and throughout pampclub.org as well as working with the many businesses that offer PAMP members exclusive discounts (remember to visit our Discounts and Members Only pages!). She also reaches out to sponsors and raffle prize donors for PAMP’s large events such as the upcoming annual Rummage Sale.
“Most organizations I contact already know PAMP,” Alison says. “I love that! It’s very uplifting to be on the phone with someone who is really happy to be a part of our community. There is no cold call or hard sell with PAMP.”
1. What is the last non-kid movie you saw? I saw Temple Grandin with Claire Danes. But not in the theaters! It was Netflix. Of course, it is a 2010 movie because we’re so far behind. We used to watch five movies a week. Now it is more like once a month. The last movie I saw in the theater was the final Harry Potter. Life has changed!
2. Are you a Bay Area native or transplant? I grew up in the Bay Area, in Oakland, but lived in Santa Monica for 14 years. We wanted to raise Ella around lots and lots of family, so we moved back shortly after she was born. I actually live a mile away from my parents, one sister and my brother. We’re all really close.
3. What’s at the top of your to-do list? I have to get a smog check and remember to call in for jury duty next week. The big one is to take my written to-do list and enter it into my iPhone with alerts so I won’t forget anything.
4. Who is your favorite Sesame Street character? I like Bert and Ernie. They seem like good buddies. Ella hasn’t started to watch that yet. I’m sure there are new ones I’ll be learning about.
5. How did you get involved with PAMP? A couple of months ago, I found I had more bandwidth and energy for something outside of my home, especially as Ella’s naps became more consistent (or so I thought!). It has been so amazing being home with her, but I thought something part-time would be great. I was previously a marketing manager at Warner Bros., so the development coordinator position plays to my strengths and background. Project management and keeping track of all the moving parts is a good fit for me. It’s fun, and I get to talk to and connect with lots of adults, a welcome change. It’s great that PAMP is so flexible. And the commute is fantastic compared to the 20 miles I used to drive in LA!
Each month we train the spotlight on someone who works behind the scenes for PAMP. Interested in joining the ranks? Browse our open volunteer positions, and apply today!
