Patricia Nelson is always for exciting others about technology.
"I have always been interested in finding out how things worked. From the transistor radio I took apart at age 6, to my first tech lab class, where I took apart and replaced the parts of the computer (and it worked!). I love learning and sharing all things tech."
Pat earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Management and her Master of Science degree in Community Health and Health Care Administration from Long Island University in New York. She has expertise in the health, legal and not-for profit fields. Working with various groups on diversity issues, education, and health care access gives her a unique and inclusive point of view.
