Meet the Board

Patricia Vekich Waldron

Vice President

I joined FOD in 2013 when I relocated to San Diego because I wanted to get to know more about the downtown community.   I’m currently Vice President where I’m working to raise the bar on our scholarship events and our external visibility.  My favorite part(s) of being a FOD member is meeting scholarship applicants and supporting students who have a vision and plan for their future – they are inspiring!  I recommend downtown professionals and residents consider joining and/or support FOD so they can other wonderful people who care about downtown and stay up-to-date on what’s going on in our community.
