Board & Staff

Board of Directors

Emily Chu


I joined PAMP in 2016 shortly after the birth of my son. We were looking for fun activities to fill our days and PAMP was and has continued to be a great resource for us. I live in Mountain View with my husband, my 1-year old son, and my 4-year old yellow lab. Professionally, I am a Controller at a private partnership in Palo Alto. I am a firm believer in giving back to the community and when I was presented with an opportunity to join PAMP Board as a Member at Large in 2017, I seized it without hesitation. I really enjoy working with smart, talented and loving moms in this role. I hope to continue to support PAMP with my accounting background as PAMP’s Treasurer.

My family and I moved to the Bay area from Canada in October 2014. We joined PAMP on our arrival and I was very grateful for the PAMP playdates to help us make new friends and learn about the area. PAMP has been a great resource for all things family related. Over the years, I have volunteered at various PAMP events and now hope to increase my involvement in this resourceful organization. I have had a unique career which will bring a different perspective to the board. I am trained as a chiropractor, have worked in business-to-business sales, and have now found my true passion of empowering parents to teach their children to sleep. I look forward to contributing to the PAMP community.

Mary Kate Stimmler


I joined PAMP in 2016, shortly after finding out I was becoming a parent. I now live in Palo Alto with my daughter Anavi and husband Sunil. I have found a nanny, a Baby Bjorn, and solid parenting advice through PAMP. I have a PhD in Organizational Behavior from the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley. I work at Google where I currently am the lead responsible for using social science to understand and improve employee engagement. Being a parent can be challenging, especially in the Bay Area, and I am thrilled to help build a supportive community for local parents.

Lisa Liu


Soon after the birth of our son and our move to Menlo Park, I joined PAMP to get to know other parents in Palo Alto and Menlo Park and to get more involved in the community. Professionally, I am a Partner at The Mitzel Group LLP, where I head up our Business and Corporate Transactions practice. I look forward to building on the success of PAMP and connecting with other PAMP members.

Melissa McAlpine

Marketing & Communications

I've been a PAMP member since 2016, when I was pregnant with my identical twin girls. My husband and I had just moved down to Mountain View after 10 years in San Francisco and a couple years in NYC. Joining PAMP seemed like the perfect way to meet families with young kids and new moms--so far it has been just that! I grew up in Los Altos and I'm a Mountain View High graduate so it's been full circle to return to the area and settle down with my family.

Professionally, after a few detours in my career--including dropping out of an art history PhD program--I've spent the last eight years happily working in product management and user experience at a variety of consumer-facing companies in media, travel, marketplaces, and wearable tech. I hope that my experience in creating fun, personalized customer experiences for users will contribute to building up the vibrant PAMP community. I'm looking forward to being a part of this amazing org!

Rebecca Cafiero


I've been living in the Bay Area for the past four years, though becoming a mother here has helped grow the roots to call it home. I've been a PAMP member since my son was born in February 2016 and I've met some dear friends through PAMP events!

Professionally, I have a 15 year background in real estate and residential development and own a boutique real estate brokerage. My real passion is in health and personal development (I'm certified in holistic health and nutrition). Through my online wellness company, we have served more than 5,000 customers and completed dozens of social and philanthropy events. I also serve as the president for Nor Cal for a non-profit health education group, where I plan and execute educational events.  I look forward to bringing my passion for events, creating community and being a mother to the PAMP community!

Nicole Pollock

Member at Large

I joined PAMP in August, 2016 when my family moved from San Francisco to Menlo Park after 13 years. We have a  and and wanted to be in the know. PAMP has been a wonderful resource for our young family.

I have a background in tech and have spent the last 12 years at Adobe, SalesForce, OpenTable, and most recently Google with a proven track record of scaling sales organizations, collaborating with product and Engineering to build what users want, and driving new product adoption.

I am looking forward to the great opportunity to contribute to the success and growth of the outstanding PAMP Community.

Shanna Gazley


My husband and I have been in the Bay Area for most of the last two decades and have lived in Mountain View since 2010. Our daughter, Uma, was born in December 2012. I joined PAMP at the rummage sale in 2016. Uma particularly loves the bouncy house events and I enjoy meeting new friends. I'm also involved in the MOMS Club of Sunnyvale, since Mountain View and Los Altos don't have a large parenting club. I have an MBA and over 15 years of B2B marketing experience.

Molly Abraham


My husband and I relocated here from NYC with our infant son in 2017. I joined PAMP shortly before our move, and found it invaluable for nanny recommendations and connecting with other parents. After early morning dance parties with my toddler, I spend my days as as a lawyer at a tech company making flying cars. I’m excited to be part of growing this amazing community for parents.

Corey Doermann

Member At Large

Shortly after the birth of my second son, I was presented with the opportunity to join the
PAMP board and I happily accepted.  As a mom to two young boys, a demanding full-time
job and no family in this time zone, I am excited to contribute to the PAMP community, meet
other parents and find some fun things to do with my kiddos.  My husband and I both grew
up in Wisconsin and moved to the Bay Area shortly after graduation.  I have spent my
career as an accountant and currently work on the finance team at a software company
in Palo Alto. I'm very excited to be a part of PAMP and creating a sense of community
for local parents.
