#FollowtheLite September Feature: Gina Patterson

Follow the LiteLiteWork Events originated as a vision to create an Urban Socialite Network in Boston. What better way to build on this vision than to highlight some of Boston’s most dynamic urban young professionals and socialites! Check out our latest feature, and hopefully you’ll also catch up with them at our next event!

Name: Gina PattersonGina Patterson

Where are you from? Boston, Ma

Alma Mater? Simmons College, BS and Columbia University, MPA

What brings you to Boston? I was born and raised in this lovely city. I moved away for my Master’s at Columbia but wanted to come back home and serve communities I love. When I received a great opportunity to marry my studies at Columbia and serve the community, I jumped at it. I’m currently working for the City of Boston on violence intervention and prevention initiatives and city-wide programming.

Tell us about yourself (What are you passionate about? Any side hustles?): I’m passionate about how we, as minorities, can continue to break down barriers and shatter glass ceilings. I’m passionate about travel- trying to complete 50 countries by 50! Having parents from the Caribbean, food is also a huge way to unify people lol I’m also passionate about all things carnival- the history and culture of it is so important. As for side hustles- I have something in the pipeline but I can’t share just yet 🙂

What’s one thing we should know about you? Family is my anchor (family is blood of course but also friends who have become family)

How can people connect with you? Find me on LinkedIn!

And there you have it folks… #followthelite!
