BIO: Patti Westby trained as a CPA, receiving her license in 1985 after graduating from UCLA, and has practiced in both the private and public sectors for 20 years in California, Washington, and Oregon. During her career, Patti spent several years developing new business and managing client relationships in the private sector, as well as for accounting firms such as Deloitte Touché. Today, Patti has retired from the public accounting field but continues to apply her accounting skills as needed.
Patti is very detail-oriented and organized. She also has a deep heart for service and finds her current work so rewarding because she has the privilege to be a part of several nonprofits making a huge impact in their communities. Patti is known for her great love of people and for her warm and caring approach towards donors, clients, and the Westby staff. And because her deep warmth radiates outward, Patti also has a gift for “landing the interview” during feasibility scheduling.
Mike and Patti have three adult children and a grandbaby who is the apple of their eye! Patti loves her family deeply, including her two golden retrievers Tucker and Lily, and two ragdoll kittens, Beau and Skyler. She is passionate about singing and has had the pleasure of performing in a few theatrical productions with both her husband and her kids, which has been the highlight of her life!
