2017-2018 Sustainer Board
Pati is living her first failed retirement, having worked in healthcare for over 40 years – from nurses’ aide to nurse to nurse practitioner, climbing the corporate ladder along the way. She retired from corporate healthcare but failed miserably at sitting at home knitting, so she answered her colleagues’ calls for help by opening a consulting company that focuses on regulatory compliance with all the alphabet soup of federal, state and accrediting bodies in healthcare – CMS, HHS, DEA, FDA, EPA, OSHA, TJC, DNV, CIHQ. She grew up in southwest Pennsylvania but moved south just as fast as she could and vows to never again own a snow shovel. She went to nursing school in Pittsburgh, got her Bachelor’s degree at University of Tennessee and her Master’s at West Virginia University, so she never knows who to root for during football season. She has been married to Mike for 35 years, and they currently have two fur-babies along with a multitude of nephews and nieces upon whom they dote. She has served on the board of several professional organizations in healthcare, and shares her civic hours with both the FBJSL and the Junior League of Houston. Pati can be reached at email@example.com.
