Nonprofit Executive Consultant

Pat Craddick is an accomplished professional with 25+ years of experience in nonprofit workforce development, philanthropy, and corporate finance.  She is passionate about mission driven community work having achieved impactful results with 9 personal merit awards for nonprofit excellence, entrepreneurship, and leadership.


As Founder, Executive Director/CEO, and Board Member (2004-2018) of ParentJobNet, Inc., an award-winning nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Pat successfully mobilized a grassroots movement with over 100 businesses and hundreds of corporate volunteers to help over 16,000 low-income public school parents gain employment and build financial security to help their children succeed.   Based in New York City public schools, the organization served these families with holistic workforce and educational programs, connected them to hundreds of jobs, improved their financial literacy, and received 16 (9 personal + 7 organizational) workforce development merit awards under her leadership. 


Having had a remarkably successful track record in the nonprofit industry leading the programmatic, operational, fundraising, marketing communication, and board development mandates of the organization gave Pat a whole new appreciation and a unique perspective of the intricacies of nonprofits.  This priceless experience has paved the way to who she is today -- a seasoned and knowledgeable nonprofit professional.


Prior to starting her nonprofit, she worked on Wall Street as a financial services professional at large institutional investment companies in a variety of positions ranging from portfolio management, institutional client services, and training/development. 


An avid lifetime learner, Pat is actively involved in Toastmasters International and held a leadership position as Vice President of Education at a local New York Chapter.  Additionally, she serves in various capacities on nonprofit boards and has volunteered for many causes over the years.

Running the NYC 26.2-mile Marathon and zip-lining 4,300 feet above Costa Rica's longest rainforest are among Pat’s bucket list achievements.
