Having traveled the globe with her start in London, England, Patty feels that being born and raised in Britain and having traveled extensively throughout Europe has afforded her an adventurous spirit and playful eye. She also lived in Brazil with her family for several years where she fell in love with the people and cultures of South America and learned to speak Portuguese. Thrilled by the variety of cultures and arts absorbed along the way, Patty continued to expand her horizons through her education. Patty’s extensive professional background began at University in San Diego where she studied philosophy. Following this, she furthered her education by attending the prestigious University of California at Berkeley.
Patty began her professional career by immersing herself in the retail world as a representative for more than 30 manufacturers from the United States and Europe developing propriety merchandise for prominent retailers and of course… her keen eye for only the finest! Having taken time off to raise her young children, and feeling the need to utilize her creative talents, Patty next focused her efforts on an educational non-profit in the San Francisco Bay Area, developing and managing business programs for the foundation whose fundraising efforts exceed $2.2 million dollars annually. Patty maintained at the same time a position with White Orchid as a consultant for several years assisting clients with our larger and premier events.
Patty has two teenage daughters and a wonderful husband who is CEO of a third generation art supply phenomenon in San Francisco and they reside in the Bay Area, Mill Valley to be exact. Finding her passion for weddings and celebrations of all sorts with WOW, Patty has officially dedicated herself full time to WOW and is now available to all of our clientele for upcoming events.
