Patty Medina joins Charlottesville Tomorrow as our new engagement reporter. Originally from the DC metro area, Patty holds a master’s degree in Journalism from Full Sail University and brings a wealth of experience in multiple forms of media. Patty is also a 15-year Air Force veteran with three years of military foreign affairs experience.
Growing up near the nation’s capital, Patty has always had a passion for pop culture, philanthropy, and politics. Her passions inspired her to become actively involved in enriching minority communities through partnerships with local charity organizations and community outreach.
