She holds a Master of Arts Degree in Counseling from Rider University, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology from Bethany College and is a Certified Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Instructor. Patty is a founding member of the Better Living for Seniors Coalition of Hillsborough County. She serves on the Board of Directors for CareerSource Tampa Bay and the Community Advisory Board for WEDU/PBS Public Media, where she also volunteers as a pledge host.
At Senior Connection Center my main job is to let the community know about SCC; who we are and what we do. I am always touting our Elder Helpline. It’s a great way to connect seniors and caregivers to the services they need. I spend a lot of time working with local businesses, volunteers and donors, finding ways to partner so we can better serve seniors.
Something you may not know about SCC is that we offer seminars to local businesses, including Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) workshops. These trainings help improve employee relationships and performance, and the funds we collect allows us to enhance our services to seniors.
When I’m not at work you are likely to find me spending time with family and friends, especially on the beach. I also enjoy reading, painting, and running.
I enjoy working at Senior Connection Center because I get to interact with such a diverse group of people, all of whom are dedicated to upholding the quality of life for older adults.
My philosophy of life is start each day with an attitude of gratitude; then fill the day with acts of love, purpose and laughter.
