Patty Meyers-Wilkens

Project Coordinator, Knight-Wallace Fellowships

Patty Meyers-Wilkens joined the Wallace House staff in 2007 and has worked on the Fellowship side of things ever since. Prior to that, she spent 10 years working as a reporter, columnist and eventually editor for a now 139 plus year-old family-owned weekly newspaper in southeastern Michigan. The staff was small and the demands were both exhausting and exhilerating. Originally from New York and a graduate of Rutgers University, she moved to Michigan with her young family back in the late 1980s. The family is no longer young and she and her husband live in a little log cabin on a lake in the beautiful Irish Hills area of southeastern Michigan.
