"Ms. Pamela Kahn combines professional services know-how with a broad background in consumer marketing including the food, retail, real estate, advertising, and fitness industries. Most recently Pamela was General Manager/Marketing Director for CycleLife, a start-up company for the cycling enthusiast in Georgetown where she successfully lobbied the District government to dedicate two street parking spots to bike racks as well as establishing the first bike valet at Washington Nationals Park.

Before joining CycleLife, Ms. Kahn was VP, Marketing for Gifford's Ice Cream & Candy Company and instrumental in Gifford's presence in the Washington National's stadium. Prior to Gifford's, Pamela was Field Marketing Manager for Balducci's Food Lovers Market, Director of Marketing & Communications for the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District, Marketing Director for White Flint Mall and Marketing Representative/Community Liaison for Whole Foods Market.

As Director of Marketing & Communications for the Golden Triangle BID, Pamela spearheaded communications and community service campaigns on branding, emergency preparedness, and transportation. Pamela redesigned the communications program, developed the new website, created the e-alert system, and generated the collaterals. As community outreach programs are very important to Pamela, she worked with the National Parks Service to present the summer Farragut Square Concert Series, the American Heart Association on their Go Red program, the Very Special Arts on their Festival, and DC on Fete de la Musique.

In addition to her strong marketing background she is a certified spinning and mat pilates instructor. Pamela has been teaching at The Sport & Health Clubs, Sports Club/LA, and VIDA Fitness at the Verizon Center.
