Pamela Grossman and her Service Dog MiloPam Grossman’s career spans more than 30 years with most of that time spent as a multimedia ad producer and strategic marketing expert, working with some industry giants such as Turner Broadcasting, Disney, Bellsouth and so many more. After developing severe panic disorder, Grossman was faced with a long hard struggle & she had to pull up her bootstraps and creatively reinvent herself to make her professional environment work for her new circumstances. . .enter, the creation of her first company, In the Present – a high-end corporate and personal gift & marketing business.  In addition to corporate gifts, her company designs and produces strategic marketing programs, stunning websites and all creative collateral.  In the Present has garnered $1.2 million in sales, with current and former clients including:  BMW, Disney, Bellsouth, Publix, American Cancer Society and United Way.

Pam’s struggle to get a handle on her panic disorder inspired her to launch her second venture., which launched in January 2011,  an online source for people with severe anxiety disorders to find real comfort and information and to meet other people with the same struggles. Her book on the topic is in its finishing stages.

And she didn’t stop there. Her goal is to truly help people struggling with the same severe disorder- by sharing her knowledge and experience with the help of a dog named Milo and  is so excited to have just kicked off Paws for Panic which will be helping other people with severe panic disorder find comfort in having a service animal.

As a public speaker, Pam inspires women and people with panic disorder to get out of their own way and become successful in business, regardless of their obstacles.

Her talks are funny and entertaining, with topics including:

  • You are Your Worst Critic
  • Did you say I can’t do that?
  • Stomach to the Ground
  • And discussions on ADA Law and your business as it pertains to Service Animals

Don’t expect a  powerpoint speech- grab your drink and a chair  and settle in for a fun interactive session with Pam as she discusses her struggle with going from a Producer to dealing  with Panic to having to re-invent herself.

Pam is a native of New York and received her bachelor’s degree in television Production from the University of Maryland, College Park. She currently resides in Metro Atlanta with her canine companion, Sydni. Her motto is: “Get out of your own way”
