Mary Pat Wallmeyer

Mary Pat is eager to join with the Arts community in Jacksonville, as we partner to promote cultural initiatives in our region. She has worked in non-profit management over the past nine years in both grant writing and grant making, and currently serves on the COJ’s Public Service Grants Council. An entrepreneur at heart, Mary Pat collaborated with small businesses across North Florida in a family business that her parents started in the late 60’s. Eventually, she and her husband Frank purchased and operated the business for many years until they sold it in 2016. She is a past-president of the Rotary Club of West Jacksonville, supporter of the arts, and of the St. Johns Riverkeeper. Mary Pat and Frank have a daughter, Grace, who works in sports partnerships in Seattle. She enjoys butterfly gardening, kayaking and keeping track of their 3 pups Bella, Maggie and Amelia.
