Meet Patty

Aftercare Resources Coordinator

Working with youth has always been important to me. Having only one child of my own may be a partial explanation as to why I’m drawn to this field. Another could be seeing the two beautiful young girls who call me grandma – what a blessing from my son and daughter-in-law. What motivates me to help our youth is my hope that if my girls ever need assistance, there would be someone there for them who has the heart, energy and skillset to help. Art is something that is restorative for me, both in creation and observation. My background includes being a high school registrar at Dayton High School, resource coordinator with Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties, as well as a community health worker. I’m currently pursuing a degree in social work from Western Nevada College.
