All Staff Tiffany Patterson District Executive Director TownLake Y Send a Message Languages Spoken English Passionate about working with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the doers, where together, our collective spirit can ignite a better world. I moved to Austin in 2010 from San Francisco, and when I combine both city tenures, I can proudly claim over 20 years of professional YMCA experience (over 50% at the Executive level). Mistakenly, I came to the Y thinking it would just be a summer job where I would work at camp. The idea of working with kids and going to all of the cool places around the Bay Area sounded like a fabulous way to spend a summer. I had no idea the Y would tap into my passion to work in an organization that has a tremendous, transformational impact on people’s lives and the community. Throughout my YMCA career, I have been successful in developing and strengthening community partnerships, expanding membership, and developing programs within the community to a variety of constituents especially in reaching the invisible populations. I bring exceptional volunteer development skills with expertise in fundraising. I’m a proud graduate of the Y-USA’s CEO Institute, and received my Masters of Nonprofit Administration from the University of San Francisco (December 2008). When I’m not at the Y, I’m blessed to spend time with my tremendous network of family and friends. I love to travel, go to the theater, listen to live music, explore the outdoors, and eat lavish dinners with a great bottle of wine.
