Angela joined our client relations staff in February, 2020. Originally from Baltimore, Angela earned her BA in psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She has traveled and worked in many parts of the country including Los Angeles and Mississippi, circling back to Maryland and eventually Red Lion where she and her family remain today.
Angela’s dream job would be to work in a zoo but the opportunity arose at Patton where Angela has been a long-time client and she is excited “to stay within [her] local community to work with those in [her] area.”
Angela has traveled extensively stating, “I’ve seen the Grand Canyon, both oceans, been across the country, cruised to different islands and countries,” but one thing she would still love to do is to spend a night in a haunted hotel. She also enjoys crafting and crochet but if she had a free day to do whatever she chose, she cites shopping, reading or taking a nap as favorite activities!
Angela, her husband and her two sons have a six-year-old English Mastiff named Buttercup and a 4-year-old Cane Corso who likes to sit on his butt on the couch with his feet dangling!
Angie lives by the Golden Rule and she feels that in terms of her career, “things happen for a reason in the grand scheme of things…so here I am.” Patton is happy that fate brought her to us and we look forward to seeing what she can do!
