Meet the 2022 Boards and Commissions Fellowship Cohort


Patty Bowen

Patty Bowen currently works for Conservation Voters for Idaho as our Environmental Justice Associate. Before joining our organization, they were the Marketing and Proposal Coordinator for POWER Engineers currently living in Boise, Idaho. Previously they managed the weekly Meridian Press, and served as Education Reporter for the Idaho Press and Editor-in-Chief at The Arbiter, the student newspaper at Boise State University.

Patty grew up on the outskirts of Canyon County and on the Boise Bench. They applied for the 2021 Fellowship Program because they believe the Treasure Valley and Idaho should be doing more to promote environmental sustainability and lower our state’s carbon footprint. Patty graduated from the 2021 program in August, and is pleased to return as a mentor for the 2022 Fellowship.

In Patty’s spare time, they are an avid podcast and fiction connoisseur, who is passionate about the local contemporary art and music scene.
