About our Guest - Genevieve Piturro

She found her true purpose when a sudden voice inside her head challenged her life as she knew it.

This year, the Program celebrates its 20th anniversary, having delivered more than 7 MILLION magical gifts of new pajamas and new books to children through their 63 chapters across the U.S.

Genevieve is now a professional speaker and personal strategy coach, sharing life and leadership lessons she learned through her Pajama Program journey.
