Patty ‘Persistent’ Barnes- Receptionist/ Bid Coordinator

Patty joined MKSD architects in 2008 as her re-entry to the workforce after being a stay at home mom for 10 years. Both of her children are very talented in the arts. Christina, 13, is a musician who plays the clarinet, sax and drums and Andrew, 16, is a gifted artist who recently won an award for a sculpture of a dragon he completed.

Before Patty and her husband moved to Allentown, they lived in Reading for 4 years. When they first moved to the Lehigh Valley, Patty was employed at Penn Title as their receptionist and payoff specialist for 5 years before deciding to be a stay at home mom. One of Patty’s first jobs was working at the Ground Round as a busgirl where she met her husband when she was 17! For fun, Patty really enjoys cooking but definitely not baking.
