Director of Finance
Patti grew up in Knoxville, but has called many places home, including Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, Missouri and California. 14 years ago, she returned to her first home to be closer to family. She has earned an MS in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. Patti has worked as an engineer and project manager in a number of different industries, including tech start ups, high-tech manufacturing, and graduate education. Obviously she loves to learn new things and that brings certifications in project management, six sigma (green belt), and human resources. When she's not working she enjoys reading, traveling, the arts, and doing all of those things along side her 24 year old daughter, Demi.
