Patty is tasked with bringing joy to attendees of Experience Grand Rapids events and travelers that pass through Gerald R. Ford International Airport. She’s the logistical genius behind a series of annual events that bring together our clients and partners for fun, fellowship and business networking. She also manages our team of Airport Ambassadors, who welcome visitors at the GFIA Visitor Information Desk and also roam the terminal, computer tablet in hand, to answer questions and provide helpful resources.
Patty came to EXGR with a people-pleasing background, having worked in hotel guest services and sales, as well as for a non-profit benefiting individuals touched by cancer. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Hotel & Restaurant Management from Eastern Michigan University and enjoys yoga, gardening and hiking.
Patty’s own favorite travel destinations include Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park, and her favorite travel partner is her husband Drew.
