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 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.

It has been proven it is healthier to live on the coast.  Some of us are addicted to the ocean, similar to chocolate!  Best hiking is Doran Beach where you can take your shoes off and walk in the gentle waves while looking at the sand dollars and numerous shells that wash up. Always wanted to learn how to surf, SUP or kayak? Surfs up at Doran and Salmon Creek beach. Go fishing, It has been a bountiful year of fishing from the salmon, ling cod and crabs, it’s all delicious.  Just want to cruise, tours are available! BECOME A BB VOLUNTEER.

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.
