Patti was born in Hazelton, BC. Spent many years in the ranching industry both in BC and Saskatchewan. She returned to the Peace Country in 2002 residing in Farrell Creek.

Her desire to help the vulnerable residents in the community of Hudson’s Hope led her to become involved with the “Friends of Hudson’s Hope Society”. She believes that every resident in a community has the power to build the community stronger.

Patti has joined the Northeast BC Community Foundation to be part of a great team of people working together to help build and nurture strong communities in the north.

Family and ranching are her passions as well as spending time hiking, quadding an sledding in our great outdoors.
