Patti Garibay is the founder and executive director of American Heritage Girls, a national service organization dedicated to developing character in the young girls of our country.

Today, American Heritage Girls is in all 50 states with over 52,000 members. Patti is considered a thought leader on "all things girl," and has appeared on radio and TV to promote American Heritage Girls and its values. She was named a member of the American Family Association's "40 Faithful" in 2017. Patti and her husband, Pat, reside in Cincinnati, Ohio, and have four married children and nine grandchildren.
