Director of Finance and Administration
Patricia McCarthy joined the Common Future staff in 2013 and feels incredibly fortunate to be working with such a talented and passionate group of change-makers. Patricia honed her finance and administrative skills at clean-tech start-ups and grass-roots community-based arts organizations in San Francisco and New York.
In her past life, Patricia was a professional dancer and toured across the United States, Europe, and Asia with various established and creative boundary pushing dance companies and choreographers. She brings the same set of skills to her finance and administration life that she brought to dance career: high velocity, humor, passion, attack, and logic.
In Patricia’s day-to-day life, she prides herself in being a devoted mother/daughter/sister and truly values her duties to each of her roles. You can often find Patricia at a local dance spot learning new movement trends, from improvisation to the New Style Hustle; practicing yoga, cooking with her family and friends, hiking with her dog, or napping. Patricia holds a BFA from The Juilliard School.
