“Meet the board” is a series of posts to help you get to know the members of your Eliot Neighborhood Association Board.
Patricia is a native Oregonian and has lived in Eliot for 28 years. She has been on the board for five years with the last two years being our Co-Chair with Jere Fitterman. Her favorite things about the neighborhood are the accessibility to the city, the diversity of the neighborhood and the sense of a caring community.
Patricia works in the office for a local cab company. She volunteers at her church, St. Philip the Deacon, at NE Rodney and Knott where we also hold our board meetings. She assists with the Saturday community lunch program and also the youth group. When she is not working at her job or volunteering at her church, Patricia loves to swim, play tennis and also basketball. One of the reasons she volunteers on the board is so that her church would have a voice in the community and also because she lives in the neighborhood and wants to stay informed and be a part of the changing community.
