We recently asked Patricia why she nominated to be on this board.

“Back in the early days of Local Land Service I was a foundation member of the ACAG (Aboriginal Community Advisory Group). During this time, I had the opportunity to learn about what Local Land Services does. Then in 2019, when the opportunity arose, Bob Smith, the Chair encouraged me to nominate for the board.”
