Pat joined the Simplicity Ministries® team in September 2014 as the Accounts Payables Clerk.  Her duties include entering all receipts, paying bills, and reconciling statements.  She is also a backup for accounts receivables and is working on creating a consolidated database.

Pat has two daughters.  Her youngest is a sophomore in college and recently moved to downtown Portland to live with her sister and brother-in-law.  As Pat is learning to adjust to being an empty-nester, she spends her free time working on home maintenance projects, serving on her HOA board, and plugging in at her church in whatever capacity needed.  She is very close to her siblings and tries to get together with some or all of them at least once a year.
