Realizing a return to education would help she and her husband Dan ’83, raise their two boys, Patti ventured into computer technology education in 1990. Patti worked as a training manager at Cadec Systems, a subsidiary of Cummins Engine Company for almost 15 years. Currently, she teaches in a middle school, and heads Meyer-Donnelly, a consulting firm specializing in instructional technologies.
At Plymouth State, Patti joined Student Senate, where she learned early on to listen carefully. “Not everyone has the same take on a topic. If I were you and you were me, we’d see things differently. It’s important to have Alumni Association board members from different avenues of life, to see the whole picture.”
Patti has coordinated dozens of teams to walk in the Jimmy Fund Boston Marathon Walk for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. She has assisted the Faith, Hope and Love Foundation with their “Gowns for Girls” event by coordinating additional sales for girls in need in Bedford, and Exeter, NH.
