“Her ready smile and  quick wit have always made her one of our most outstanding volunteers and one who deserves the honor of the Torrance Art Museum’s Volunteer of the Year. “

Patricia has been a Torrance resident since 1963 and a volunteer at the Torrance Art Museum since it opened in 2005. Immediately, she stood out as enthusiastic and diligent, becoming one of their charter volunteers. She keeps moving forward despite problems that may be thrown her way, with the perfect solution. Patricia has been extremely supportive of the museum’s mission to, “engage visitors and give them a memorable experience when they walk through our doors.” They constantly rely on her feedback and she has also provided the museum with contructive ways to improve the services they give to the community.

“We love to describe this hardworking dedicated lady as our very own energizer bunny.  “- Museum Staff
