PATRICIA BLACKFORD | Board Member

Pat joined the Brem Board in 2006 because she wanted to spend her time volunteering for a deeply personal cause—that desire has been fulfilled and surpassed by her service to Brem. A longtime certified public accountant who is currently transitioning into retirement, Pat has served as Brem’s treasurer since 2007.

Prior to joining the Brem board, Pat realized there were many women in local communities who were unable to pay for much-needed diagnostic services—and when she learned of Brem’s lifesaving work, she became a dedicated supporter. Pat found it very satisfying to raise enough money to help women pay for these services, and to educate the public about the importance of early breast cancer detection.

Pat spends a lot of time volunteering for charitable causes and serving on nonprofit boards. In her free time, Pat enjoys sewing and fiber arts. She lives in Huntingtown, Maryland with her husband, Charlie, and their Miniature Schnauzer, Libby.
