Ms. Patty has been a member of the Good Shepherd faculty for more than 16 years. She came to Denver via many cities, and Denver is definitely her favorite! She was born in Hamilton, Ohio, and attended her local parish school and has either attended or worked at a Catholic School almost every year since! She graduated from the University of Notre Dame with a Bachelor of Arts degree in American Studies, from Boston College with a Master’s of Arts in Teaching, and the University of Phoenix with a Master’s in Administration and Supervision. She worked at St. Mary’s High School in Colorado Springs and then moved to Portland, Oregon, where she was a Student Affairs Administrator and Adjunct Professor of History at the University of Portland. After Portland, her family moved to Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and resided there for three years. She landed in Colorado in 2000 and came to Good Shepherd because of the dual Traditional and Montessori programs for her children. She is married and the mother of three graduates of Good Shepherd. She enjoys cooking, gardening, and hiking in her free time.
