Originally from Georgia, Patti graduated with honors from the University of Georgia with a B.S. Ed. and is proud to be a fourth-generation Bulldog. She made her way to Crested Butte eleven years ago following her love of the mountains of Appalachia and the recreational opportunities that our valley offers. Patti chose a career in real estate to combine a passion for beautiful mountain properties with her innate desire to bring people together in our community. Her background in management and marketing with Crested Butte Mountain Resort forged a successful path towards leadership with Bluebird Real Estate as their General Manager. She enjoys volunteering with the Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley to engage and connect resources across our valley so that everyone can thrive. In her free time, Patti enjoys rafting during the spring runoff, nordic skiing with her dog “Hoss,” and cooking for family and friends.
