Patty Ryan began working with Be Leadership as a Business Manager in early 2019. She brings a background in senior-level event production, marketing and branding to the team.
Patty is relaunching her career after spending the last 18 years caring for her children and volunteering on a mostly full-time basis with various organizations. Originally from the US, Patty is a trail-blazing spouse and has spent the last decade outside the U.S., living in Spain, and now the U.K.
Patty worked in the fund raising, events, and marketing departments of large non-profits and a financial services firm, before taking an extended break to raise her children. While working, she also served in various capacities on the Board of Directors of Women in Sports and Events. She has had a number of volunteer positions, leading to a role on the NEST+m School Leadership Team before relocating to Spain. Patty also held various positions with the International Newcomers Club of Madrid, and is currently part of the TASIS England Parent Association Executive team. When time permits, Patty enjoys traveling, hiking, playing golf, and visiting art galleries and flea markets.
