Meet Our Members: Patty Vannoy

Lubbock Monterey AMBUCS is honored to have our very own, Patty Vannoy, serving as the President of the National AMBUCS organization this year.

Patty Vannoy‏

Patty, and her husband David (also a member of Montery AMBUCS), are the parents of two married sons, Zakk (wife Kristina) and Sean (wife Charli), and grandparents to Zakk and Kristina’s two girls, Abby and Emma.

Patty says that to relax she attends a monthly Whine & Wine Book Club and a ladies domino group; works out at the Falls; gardens & loves being by the water whenever possible, which may not be often, because she’s such an active part of everything she puts her hand to.

Whether it’s volunteering with her church (Lakeridge UMC) or with the Challenger Little League, where she’s been a member of the board since its inception, Patty is all in with whatever she’s doing.

She worked almost 30 years with a group of orthopedic surgeons, retiring in 2000, and says that most folks are probably not aware that she has a Bachelor degree in Radiology, and still currently holds national & state licenses as a Registered Radiologic Technologist & a Registered MRI Technologist.

Patty has been a member of Monterey AMBUCS since 1995, and has served in practically every position of responsibility we have, all the way up to President of the club in 2000-2001.

For the past several years, in addition to be being active in our local club, Patty has served on the National AMBUCS Scholarship Committee, and her untiring efforts have been responsible for keeping an unprecedented amount of the National AMBUCS Scholarship monies coming back to the Lubbock area, and to Texas Tech therapy students in particular.

Of her new position as National President, Patty says, “It is an honor to represent Lubbock Monterey and the Southwest Region in this way. I love AMBUCS, and the mission of creating mobility & independence for people with disabilities.  It is amazing to be involved with so many great AMBUCS all across the country who meet this mission by providing AmTrykes, as well as Scholarships for student therapists”

Check out the latest National AMBUCS quarterly magazine, and see Patty’s “Letter from the President” on Page 2 about the record year that AMBUCS has been experiencing in the areas of both Amtrykes and Scholarships.

Again, Lubbock Monterey AMBUCS is honored to have Patty serving as National AMBUCS President, and we all wish her much success in this office, simply the latest in her long line of acts of service.
