Pattie Marshall

Executive Director

View Pattie’s Bio

Pattie lives on a small farm in the Auburn/Black Diamond area with her horses, dogs, and cats. She loves art, antiques, coin collecting, old cars, cooking, and camping. Pattie has four grown daughters and three grandchildren. She is proud they are all thriving, and feels it is due to the mentoring, support, and encouragement from family/parent partners, recovery coaches, the peer community, and the tools they gained as they navigated the behavioral health system of care over the past several decades. Pattie’s non-profit leadership style promotes youth and family voice and collaboration with community partners. As a person in long term recovery, Pattie finds hope from others’ lived experience and now shares her recovery story to reduce stigma and increase awareness about behavioral health recovery. In addition to lived experience, she brings a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership from a Wellness Perspective and 25 years of Human Services experience, specializing in Operationalizing Peer Support in Youth & Family run Community Organizations.

Connie comes from a background filled with lived experience and overcoming unexpected losses and events. She is currently working on completing her bachelor’s degree while also navigating the world as a young adult. Prior to working for GPS, she worked with children diagnosed with ASD. But when she heard of our organization, she knew this is where she needed to be so she can encourage and support people going through similar hardships and events that she went through as well. When she’s not busy being your number one supporter, you can find her playing with her cat and dog or jamming out to music.
