Patricia began volunteering with SPAN in October 2010 as a DART advocate and since then has been a court advocate, crisis line volunteer, and has given much of her time to be an on call staff member. She went to school for Criminal Justice and Criminology at Metro State University of Denver and graduated in 2009. Her dedication to being an active agent of change is evident in her participation with many other organizations such as Court Appointed Special Advocate, Victims Advocate with Westminster’s police department, “Volunteer on Probation” with Westminster Municipal Court, and her on going passion to use her voice and give her time to support others. A little more about Patricia:
What are your favorite quotes? “I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” by Edward Everett Hale, and, “Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you get tomatoes”, Author Unknown.
What sound do you love? I love the sound that “Spring Peeper” frogs make after sunset in late May.
If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be? Some time, hopefully not very far in the future: the U.S. Department of Labor announces that the “gender pay gap” has been reduced from 23% down to 0%.
SPAN would like to thank Patricia for putting her heart and soul into working with our clients!
