After trying to retire twice in Massachusetts, Pat moved to Virginia five years ago, also thinking she would retire. Instead, she joined VOF part time in 2018 and works to digitize VOF’s vast store of easement records. In Massachusetts, Pat taught preschool through 5th grade and then worked at Digital Equipment Corporation, SAP, and Market Intelligence. She has a bachelor’s in education and a master’s in business management from Lesley University in Cambridge. Pat heard about VOF from her sister, Sue, who also works in the Staunton office. She is pleased to assist in VOF’s work to preserve land for future generations.
