Women who make a difference in Brea-Pat Tremayne

7 years ago by in ( Uncategorized , Who's Who )
Since March is National Women's History Month, we at Beautiful Brea Old and New would like to highlight a woman in Brea who makes a difference every day. A woman who has lead others by example. We choose Pat Tremayne, Community Services Specialist for the City of Brea. Pat Tremayne has lived in Brea 42 years, where she and her now deceased husband Al raised their children 2 children, Tracy and Todd. Even though Al ran Brea Meats and Locker, Pat needed a job 22 years ago as many married women do. After graduating from college and getting married, she was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years though. What was she going to do? Her volunteerism, which included organizing major events, became her resume. A fellow mom helped write her resume and she applied with the city for an administrative position. She didn't get the first position she applied for, but didn't give up. She soon got a job at the Curtis Theater box office, which gave her a foot in the door. Soon, a  community services position opened up. It was a gold mine to her. "This is why I've been doing what I've been doing," she told a friend and applied for the position. Over one-hundred people applied for the position. That was narrowed down to 12 and then narrowed down to 2. She got the job. Pat is instrumental in organizing events such as the Nutcracker Boutique and the annual Tree Lighting ceremony, among other major events for the city. She has also mentored many women college students along the way, helping them advance in their careers as event planners. At the end of National Women's History month, we salute Pat and her work in the city of Brea.
