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.

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.

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.

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.

I am a Bay Area native, born and bred. I moved to Silicon Valley six years ago, but didn’t really put down roots until I had kids. I have been a PAMP member since my first child was born, joining because I felt isolated, and wanted to connect to people in the same stage of life. My son and I both met some of future best friends through the PAMP playgroups!

I am a nurse in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, where I care for the sickest of the sick, working together with families to provide comfort and hope in their darkest hours. I aspire to bring light and laughter with my singing, dancing, and hospital-grade ice cream sundaes. To find balance, I chose to spend my personal time out-and-about on the peninsula with my husband and kids, immersing myself in sunshine and smiles. I plan to bring my innate need to connect with others, and my joy for the little moments, to the community I hope to make with PAMP families.

Melissa McAlpine


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!

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.

Lenia Dritsoula


I am from Greece and moved to the United States to pursue my PhD in 2009. 10 years and 2 kids later, I am now a software engineer at Google, trying to balance work and family life (if this is even possible!). When I am not at work or at home with my husband and our two daughters, I like enjoying a nice cup of coffee and reading a book. I joined PAMP to get to know other families in the area, share my experiences being so far away from my home country and explore fun activities to do with my family. I have lived in Palo Alto and Menlo Park for about a decade and I think a have barely scratched the surface regarding places and go and things to do!
