Pamela Guarrera
Pamela has been a regular at Vital since 2003, after first stumbling upon an ad for a show about fairies at their 42nd Street location -- she and her older daughter attended the show and were instantly hooked! Pamela's girls have since seen almost all the shows Vital has offered in their lifetimes, and Pamela has served both on the Board of Vital and currently as a Parent Ambassador. Her girls have enjoyed their birthday parties, Junior Performance Camp and After School classes at Vital. Pamela has over 20 years of experience in communications and graphic design work, mostly for non-profits. Currently, she is the Director of the New York Zero-to-Three Network and is very involved at The School at Columbia University, where her daughters are enrolled.
