    Patty Stokes
    Patty Stokes, Ph.D., teaches in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Ohio University. She became passionate about ending sexual violence when confronted with its high prevalence and resultant trauma among her students. Realizing that its impact was equally harmful throughout our communities, she completed volunteer training with SAOP in summer 2015. When SAOP began moving toward independent non-profit status, she became the founding board member. She feels privileged to see the organization blossom and grow thanks to the incredible dedication and empathy of its staff and volunteers.
