Patty joined as a volunteer at the Front Street Animal Shelter after moving to Sacramento from San Diego in 2022. Drawing on her experience at the San Diego Humane Society as a dog handler, Patty spends every weekend at Front Street working with the dogs and mentoring new dog handlers. As an advocate for animal welfare and with a passion for helping many of our animals find their furever homes, Patty offers unwavering support to the Front Street mission. Patty joined the board in 2023 with a wealth of corporate experience working in the defense industry. Her focus is to expand our corporate sponsorships and industry partnerships. Outside of work and volunteering, Patty spends time with her 2 rescue dogs, Miki and Nikko.
