Pat joined the Little Bit Board of Directors in 2016 with more than 25 years of not-for-profit experience - five years of which were as Little Bit's Executive Director. She is a PATH International Certified Advanced Instructor, Lead Accreditation Visitor, and Chair of the Faculty Development Task Force. Although Pat started riding in Okinawa when she was a teenager, she didn't begin eventing until she was in her twenties and, after a bad fall in her thirties, later decided dressage might be a better sport for someone of her age. She hasn't ridden since the loss of her beloved Spike but is hoping to get back in the saddle again sometime soon. During her tenure on the board, she plans to help with fundraising and be available as a resource in support of Little Bit staff.
