Helping non-profits change their world
As president and CEO of Bohse & Associates, Pat provides oversight, strategic direction, stewardship and advocacy to the non-profit arena. With more than 30 years’ experience, she was instrumental in discovering new and better ways for non-profits to unlock value, cut costs, build assets and move forward. Pat was the chief mobilizer and creator of transformational growth at every organization she helped build. As the leader and spokesperson for Bohse & Associates, an organization that provides focused, customized guidance and consultation, she is a strong communicator eager to bring her leadership experience to the government and not-for-profit sectors by offering inspirational leadership and direction – through coaching sessions, business and management presentations, teleconferencing and webinars – to help organizations identify their strengths and leverage their best assets.
As the Executive Director of SCAN (Social Community Activities Network), Pat practices what she preaches, having rebuilt a struggling non-profit into a thriving adult social education and resource center and expanding its reach to Monmouth and Ocean counties. SCAN now enhances the quality of life for active adults through socialization, education, technology and targeted resources. Pat is confident she can help organizations identify, cultivate and steward the robust relationships and programs that will help them thrive in uncertain times.
