Springfield, VA

Project Manager

As a leading authority on web content and technology in the DC metro area, Patty receives hundreds of calls and emails regarding projects. She has the practical knowledge that allows her to set up whole Drupal sites on her own, write attention-getting web content on virtually any subject, handle fine-art-based design and illustration, and do HTML/CSS coding. She also manages the high level planning and organization of a site's content and architecture. She is helping organizations advance beyond simple text and pictures to complex but easy-to-manage sites that fully use content management systems such as Drupal. In addition, she is on the forefront of incorporating online video and animation that is far more than a small rectangle with a talking head, creating sites that are highly visual and interactive.
Patty has worked on call for the federal government since 1985, and in virtually every industry in the private sector. Federal agencies she has worked for include U.S. Agency for International Development, General Services Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, Army Corp of Engineers, Department of State, Department of Defense, U.S. Coast Guard, Department of Health and Human Services, National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of the Air Force, Department of the Army, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Agriculture. Private sector clients for Patty’s creative work have included ad agencies, technical firms, software developers, publishers, and large organizations (Freddie Mac, Northrop Grumman, Science Applications International Corp., Electronic Data Systems, Wang Government Services, and Hughes Training).
After completing a degree in video and audio production, Patty established a reputation over 34 years of producing highly effective web, video, and print. She has developed streamlined methods of managing media productions that allow them to be creatively and technically advanced. She is currently active in the community that is bringing Drupal-based technology into the federal government as part of the Open Government and Open Source initiatives. Many of her projects have involved writing and designing training materials, and she has years of experience as an instructor teaching in her field.
