Meet the Pink Pamper Team

 

Marian Geisler

Founder & President
marian@pinkpamper.org

Marian is a PA licensed cosmetologist specializing in hair styling, skin care, and cosmetics.

Marian lost her mother to cancer which created a very personal understanding of the struggle of patients going through treatment. While enjoying a night out with friends in 2008, they began discussing ways to create an event that would provide financial support to women going through cancer treatment. They turned their desire and ideas into The Pink Pamper. They explored options on where to hold the event which led them to a hotel with a beautiful ballroom. It was here that The Pink Pamper “Health and Beauty Fair” began. The committee made up of a few good friends sought out vendors and beauty professionals and made it the “go to” event for seven years. Marian has been a cornerstone of The Pink Pamper since its inception and she continues to work tirelessly to help The Pink Pamper increase its impact on the lives of women cancer patients.
