Patty has been Resident Director of Operations of the Wisconsin in Scotland program since August 2007 and she loves Scotland. She came to WIS with several years of experience working in various areas of student affairs including International Studies, Residence Life, Career Services, Greek Life, and Human Resources. Most recently, Patty was a Resident Director at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. Patty served two years as Assistant Coordinator of the St. Cloud State Centre for British Studies just south of the Scottish/English border in Alnwick, England. She earned her Master of Arts in College Student Personnel from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio and her Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Cloud State University in Minnesota. Patty loves working with students, especially in the unique living and learning environment created on programs like Wisconsin in Scotland. Patty married a Brit in January 2010, so she plans to stay in Scotland for a long time! Patty and her wife Natalie enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures, seeing films, cooking (and subsequently eating), and the WIS program.
