Pam Victor wears a lot of hats: professional improviser, facilitator, happiness coach, author, teacher, mom, and the Head of Happiness (aka founder and president) of Happier Valley Comedy, the first improv theater in Western Massachusetts. In service to HVC’s mission to bring more laughter, joy, and ease to the world, Pam directs the three branches of the company: the improv training center, regular shows, and the THROUGH LAUGHTER program for professional and personal development, which uses improv training exercises to build foundational training skills, such as communication, collaboration, and workplace wellness and wellbeing. ​Pam is a recipient of the 2019 New England Public Radio Arts & Humanities Award and a TEDx speaker. She is the author of “Baj and the Word Launcher: A Space-Aged Asperger Adventure in Communication” and co-author of “Improvisation at the Speed of Life: The TJ & Dave Book.” Pam is a nice person. She likes you already.
