Pat Meyers has been a front desk assistant volunteer at the NVFS Multicultural Human Services (MHS) program for the past four years. She was inspired to volunteer after seeing a film her neighbor made about the MHS program.
In her volunteer role, Pat greets and checks in MHS clients and Inova OB/GYN clinic patients (Inova donates and shares space with MHS), fields phone calls and assists with other administrative tasks.
Pat’s favorite part about volunteering for NVFS is the opportunity to help people from other countries assimilate to life in America. “I respect the effort it takes to change one’s life in the face of unexpected circumstances and I enjoy supporting the work of the dedicated counselors from many nations who ‘pay it forward’ in an effective manner.”
Pat grew up in the DC area and graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in Costume Design. Outside of volunteering, Pat works part-time for her husband at Hemphill & Associates maintaining the company website and photographing the company’s remodeling projects.
Thank you, Pat, for your support which gives the clients of MHS the chance to have a brighter future in their adopted country!
