Skidmore Spotlight: Patricia Folts
Patricia Folts works as a budget and finance analyst in the Office of Special Programs. She maintains and analyzes Special Programs’ financial activities and is responsible for coordinating the hiring of approximately 400 summer employees.
Folts joined Skidmore in 2012. She enjoys Skidmore's lively campus, from students relaxing near Haupt Pond to sporting events, musicals and annual culinary competitions. She also enjoys the camaraderie among employees.
“I’m fortunate to work with many great colleagues,” Folts said. “I enjoy attending the community coffee hours, networking breakfasts and luncheons, ice cream socials and annual employee recognition. It’s a great time to meet new colleagues and catch up with old ones.”
Folts is also an avid fan of Skidmore’s field hockey team, and her daughter recently ended a four-year career playing for the College. She also enjoys being involved in Skidmore Cares. “I think it’s important to give back to the community and help others in need,” she said.
When not at work, Folts spends time with family and friends and enjoys gardening, reading, hiking and watching sporting events, especially field hockey and ice hockey.
