My Background

I studied Positive Psychology under Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar who taught the most popular class at Harvard University – teaching students how to be happier. I’ve earned certificates in Positive Psychology and Positive Psychology Coaching from the Whole Being Institute. I am a teacher by training and have taught fourth and fifth grades. Most recently, I was the Executive Director of a nonprofit organization for 16 years and prior to that worked in two startup businesses and in corporate sales.

Learn a Little About Pam Garramone


My name is Pam Garramone. I am a Positive Psychology Speaker and Coach. I teach the Science of Happiness – How to be Happier to middle and high school students, teachers and to corporate employees.
About 4 years ago, it started to sink into my heart that I wasn’t really all that happy despite all the things I had that should have made me happy. I had a great job that I truly loved (most of the time); I had loving relationships with amazing people but I couldn’t seem to make them last; I had an abundance of friends and supportive family. I lived in Boston, a beautiful city close to the ocean with boundless opportunities and things to do but still I wasn’t happy. I knew I should be but I wasn’t. I felt exactly like Gretchen Rubin described in her book, The Happiness Project. “I wasn’t depressed and I wasn’t having a midlife crisis, but I was suffering from midlife malaise – a recurrent sense of discontent and almost a feeling of disbelief. Can this be me? But though at times I felt dissatisfied, that something was missing, I never forgot how fortunate I was.”

I just felt alone a lot of the time and like there had to be something more – there had to be a way to be happier and appreciate all of the good things in my life.

I decided to study happiness and had the great fortune to learn from Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar who taught the most popular class at Harvard – How to be Happier. Finally, I was in my element. I have always been fascinated by positive psychology. In high school, I read all of Norman Vincent Peale’s books, listened to his “tapes” and sermons and by the end of college dreamed of being the female, Tony Robbins!

After years of study and reading a ton of books on happiness, I am happier and I continue to go along this journey – feeling the full range of emotions and enjoying the process. And, there is nothing I love more than teaching and coaching others; I feel like I’ve come full circle back to my destiny.

All the best,
