Biographical Sketch:

Patty Marsh is the Upper Columbia Conference Director of Children Ministries, Women’s Ministries, Adventist Community Services, and Adventist Disaster Response. Patty particularly enjoys meeting and working with people, from the littlest one in Beginner’s Sabbath School to the faithful retirees that provide invaluable time and talents in Adventist Community Services.

Over the last 35 years Patty has worked in every Sabbath School leadership position from Beginners to Adult, led women’s groups for over two decades and given hundreds of hours in various community service endeavors. "Unfortunately the only experience I've had for Adventist Disaster Response was surviving the tornadoes, hurricanes, fires, and earthquakes that frequent the places I have lived previously," says Patty, "God has unique methods of preparing one for future service!"

Patty grew up as a pastor's daughter in many of the Southern states of the U.S.A. – Tennessee, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, but she graduated from high school at Modesto Academy in Central California. It was here that she met her husband, Larry. Patty and Larry both graduated from Loma Linda University, La Sierra Campus.

Including her years as a full-time mom, Patty has spent most of her career in the educational arena in Northern California, Indiana, Missouri, Washington and Virginia. Patty has taught business classes, worked in Communications and Alumni, served as Registrar of Upper Columbia Academy and as an administrative assistant in various locations.

In her spare time Patty enjoys reading, gardening, birding, hiking, camping, music, and travel. She is most passionate spending time with family, playing the piano, bird watching, and studying God’s Word!
