It is with deep sorrow that we announce the loss of our beloved friend and colleague Patti Safford. Patti passed away unexpectedly on Monday afternoon, January 13, 2020. It is such a difficult loss, not only because Patti was such a highly valued team member and titan in the industry, but also because she was a sweet, loving, dear friend to so many. Words cannot express how deeply saddened we are by this news.

Those who knew Patti well can attest to how warmhearted, open, and generous she was to all. Her positive attitude and energy left a mark on everyone she interacted with, whether it was family, a friend, a coworker, a client, or a stranger at the grocery store. She impacted countless lives and she uplifted so many through her charitable work.

Toward the end of 2019, Patti had taken on additional responsibilities with Impact 21 as the new Director of Operations. Patti oversaw the on-boarding of new consultants and employees, the organization and maintenance of Impact 21’s project management processes and tools, and supported the entire Impact 21 team in many other ways. She was so excited to begin this new position and met the challenges head-on with boldness and tenacity.

Patti was loved by all who knew her, and she will be immensely missed by her Impact 21 team and clients, and her family and friends.
