Patty is a Fresno native with a love for the natural environment. Her dream was to work for a cause she could believe in, so she enthusiastically joined the River Parkway Trust staff in November 2003 as Development Assistant. Shortly thereafter, she became the Executive Office Manager, with oversight of Board relations, payroll and human resources, and office administration. She also works closely with the Development Department in the area of Annual Giving. Patty has an Associate Arts Degree in General Education, and added various courses of interest in following years. She enjoys camping and hiking in the high Sierra, as well as the Eaton trail right at the River Center!
