Meet Pat Cochran – Our New LWV CVA President

Jun 9, 2018

Pat Cochran, our newly elected President, is relatively new to the League of Women Voters but certainly not new to community service. Pat says that a full life including motherhood has afforded her with many volunteer opportunities along the way. She held the elected position of “Library Trustee” in Milton, Massachusetts, and “chaired” the board of trustees of the Village School also in Milton.

Her career as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist spanning more than 40 years included many venues of participation in teaching and research in the field of anesthesia and afforded her a birds-eye view of the ever evolving roles of women in medicine.

Since retiring in 2015, she and her husband Gordon Matthew have worked via JABA to introduce and implement the international program “Music & Memory” at Mountainside Senior Living Memory Care Unit.

Pat also enjoys the wonders of being a grandparent to six “perfect” grandchildren.

Pat’s term of office officially begins July 1, 2018, and goes to June 30, 2020. Welcome Pat !
