Pam moved to NYC in 1987 with Mike, her college love, and worked as a VP of Merchandising for over 10 years. After having 2 children (Meaghan & Michael), she reached her AH-HA moment on yet another overseas business trip, "there must be a better way!” Soon, she and Mike packed up their young family and moved to rural Sandy Hook, CT to lead a simpler life.

Feeling the creative pull, she envisioned a socially conscious company that would allow her to be *present* for her family of 5 (Matt). Like her family, Our Green House, continues to evolve & grow.
