Pat O'Connor has been a WAMMC member for over 17 years and is honored to have been asked to serve on the Board on three separate occasions for a total of 12 years. During her first tenure on the Board, she served as Parliamentarian and Chair of the By-Law Committee. Upon returning to the Board, she served two terms as Vice-President of Healing Services, which included oversight of several of WAMMC's most remarkable programs including Calling All Kids and Scholarship. She had the privilege to serve as Chair of the Nominating Committee and is now serving as Past Officer on the Executive Board. She continues to be amazed at how much this remarkable group of women accomplish on behalf of MMC. Besides the friendships she has made as a member of WAMMC, and the joy of working with Calling All Kids, she said the most fun she's had has been as a volunteer for Mansion in May. She thinks we all look forward to those special Mansion years when we work hard pulling towards the same goal of helping MMC enhance a facility or a Physician/Nursing program for the greater good of our community. Even when she Co-Chaired MIM 2020 during the uncertainty and challenges of the Covid pandemic, she and her Co-Chair had a memorable time and will forever appreciate the efforts put forth by their dedicated team to ensure we opened our doors and raised over a million dollars towards the expansion of Gagnon Cardiovascular Institute.
