After spending most of her career relocating corporate employees around the world, she began two successful family businesses in the coastal town of Bodega Bay, California with her daughter Alicia and her husband Paul. Patty has been coming to Bodega Bay her entire life and moved to the coastal town 12 years ago.

Patty is on the Board of Directors of Waves of Compassion Foundation, offering the first food pantry for the coastal community; Bodega Bay CERT, helping Bodega Bay be prepared for a local disaster & Bodega Bay Area Chamber of Commerce, assisting local businesses manage the unique coastal business environment. She began the Bodega Bay Collaborative, a group dedicated to providing information to the residents of Bodega Bay on the opportunities and challenges in their beloved village. She was recognized by the Sonoma County Tourism Board with the Hospitality of the Year 2018 award for her leadership role during the 2017 Firestorm, as well as by Congressman Mike Thompson and Supervisor, Susan Gorin.

Patty enjoys hiking the Sonoma Coast, many times leading the hike offering bits of history with the goal that others will love & respect the coast as much as she does.

We’ve lost a longtime treasured member of the community. 77-year-old Bill Fink was well known by many as a kind and smart man who would always be in the annual parade flashing one of his beautiful Morgan sports cars. He imported, collected, modified, sold, worked on and of course loved to drive these vintage British cars. Access to links to watch 3 part video series riding Morgan car in Sonoma County with Bill Fink.
