Preparing for a radio interview about education and employment opportunities and pay equity for women


“AAUW Guam was privileged to have Patricia visit us early in 2012. Her genuine warmth, lively personality, and enthusiastic interactive manner were apparent from the outset. Patricia was tireless in her willingness to encourage and support us. Her ability to dynamically communicate on Guam via TV, radio, small and large group presentations, interviews won her much praise. She has significantly inspired and empowered AAUW Guam Branch.”
