Meet Pamela Murphy: NY Mama and Creative Director
“If you don't believe in you, who will?”
What do you do and what led you to this career?
I am currently the Founder + Creative Director of The Select 7, a curated lifestyle website. I originally went to journalism school, and have always loved the art of creating community. These helped build the foundations of The Select 7.
What are the names and ages of your children?
Campbell, who is 15 years old; and Callen, who is 12 years old.
What has been your biggest career achievement thus far?
Starting this brand and website with literally no idea what I was doing and turning it into something I know and love has been my biggest career achievement.
What is the most rewarding aspect of being a mother?
Watching these people become people. Listening to their thoughts, opinions, and desires, and watching them become independent humans.
And what is the most challenging?
Every. Single. Thing.
What is your best advice for someone new to your industry?
Keep going. The road is long and it can feel endless, but just keep going. If you don't believe in you, who will?
What is your best advice for a new mother?
Pay attention. It all goes so fast. Just be there.
What's next for you? Do you have any exciting projects coming up?
We're launching a podcast, The Select Session soon!
