Patty joined the OGRE team in January 2017 as Program Assistant. While receiving her Bachelor of Science in Communications with special focus in sustainable development, she served as an officer for the UF Hispanic Student Association and coordinated media engagement and programming for the Gainesville Latina Women’s League and WUFT FM. These experiences primed her for working with diverse populations, and facilitating engagement between stakeholders and the community.
