Member Minute: Morgan Patten

The Membership and Mentorship Committee would like to introduce one of NASJE’s newest members. Hailing from the great state of Ohio, we present Morgan Patten!

1. What was your path to judicial education?
Before coming to the Supreme Court of Ohio, I worked at a couple of non-profits in positions that happened to have an education component. One of my favorite projects was working on a pain management curriculum for patients with chronic pain.

2. How long have you worked at your organization?
I’ve been at the Supreme Court of Ohio for almost four years, and just moved into a new position a couple months ago.

3. If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be?
I would be an actuary! I really like math and problem solving, and I have a nerdy interest in data-driven decision-making.

4. What do you like to do, when you’re not at work?
Well, I mostly run around with our kids. We have four, so there is lots of running! Favorite thing of late has been going to the new dinosaur exhibit at our local museum.

5. What’s your favorite movie?
Every Marvel movie. Can’t wait for Black Panther. Not to be too controversial in an introduction, but I just don’t love the DC film universe.

Welcome to NASJE, Morgan!
