It’s Team Member Tuesday again! This week we’re talking with Patty Warren.
Keep your eyes peeled, by the way, for new NON-Team Member stories coming soon!
Name: Patty Warren
Position: Operations Management Consultant II
How long have you been with the Division? 10 years
So what exactly do you DO? I manage the Division’s budget, prepare all annual documents for the Legislative Budget Request, oversee the grant payment process and manage the National Endowment for the Arts State Partnership Award while supervising assigned staff.
What’s your favorite part of your job? Interacting with staff and constituents, resolving problems, creating solutions and streamlining processes
Are you an artist yourself? If so, what do you do? I used to draw and even studied art at FSU for a brief stint before I ended up in education. Now I satisfy the need for working with color and design with helping friends and family decorate their homes.
What do you like to do for fun? I read a lot, spend time with my grandchildren and when it’s not too hot, I play tennis doubles.
If you could go anywhere in the world to see art, where would you go and what would you see? I would return to Europe to see great architecture.
Tell us something surprising about yourself. I am pretty much out there with few surprises. I would love to participate in local theatre but never seem to get around to actually doing it. I think I would be good at designing stage sets and painting back drops. Oh, and in another life over a 4 year period, I hired the staff for NASCAR race weekends at Watkins Glen Race Track in upstate New York.
