Patty started working at Gold Star in the spring of 2014, joining our fantastic front desk staff. She came to us after earning her Bachelors in Social Work from San Francisco State, followed by years as a supervisor in a rehabilitation/work training center, which lead to 15 years working in the world of children’s publishing. We are delighted that she has brought her amazing organizational talents and personable nature to us, helping parents negotiate all the offerings in our club. Patty raised a son who never found the siren call of the gym, and so she is incredibly empathetic when parents are trying to decipher a trampoline from a Tumbl Trak. She is forever calm in the face of our busy desk, able to juggle a multitude of questions, while cataloging paperwork, and genuinely enjoying her interactions with our clients. We are thrilled to have her at our helm.
