Patti Varley

Appointed to Ryther's Board of Trustees in June 2018

Ms. Varley is a Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner who retired after 40 years at Seattle Children's Hospital. She joined Ryther’s Board to honor her departed Aunt Barbara Kilborn who was active with Ryther for many years and when invited to join by her daughter, Paige Otero, Patti could not resist an opportunity to serve.

Ms. Varley has been very active in many organizations and committees past and present, serving as an officer, Board member, general member and was on planning committees.  These organizations and committees include ARNPs United, AAPPN, APNA, WSNA, Sigma Theta Tau, Seattle Children’s Home, Washington State Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, Washington State Drug Utilization and Education Council, and HIT Committee for Scouts of America . She also is clinical faculty in the school of nursing for UW, and on the editorial review board for JCAP.

Ms. Varley brings a wealth of knowledge to Ryther with her experience with all her organizations and committees listed above, but Ms. Varley has  also been active politically in Olympia for health care, especially mental health issues for children.
