Ambassador Spotlight: Janet Patterson

Name: Janet Patterson
Development Director
Bridgehaven Mental Health Services

How long have you been a GLI Ambassador? One year and I just signed up for another!

What is your favorite part about being a GLI Ambassador? Meeting so many new people around the city and building new friendships.

A fun fact about me is… I love animals and I can’t say no to my 12-year-old son. Because of this, we have six cats, two dogs, one ferret, one hamster, one lizard and one bird.

What is the best career advice you’ve received? Never leave a company because of someone, stay true to why you are there.

What does being a GLI investor mean to you? Being a GLI investor helps Bridgehaven and myself be a part of the city most people never get to see.

What is your favorite thing to do in Louisville? We love to try out new restaurants. Louisville has great food!  Right now my favorites are Red Top Gourmet Hotdogs and Tonnerville Deli.

What do you do to make greater Louisville GREATER? I help break down the stigma of mental health. We all need to create a welcoming environment for people to heal in recovery. It’s only when we all work together the world will begin to heal.
