NKF-MDDE’s Pattie Dash Returns to The Daily’s Record’s Top 100 Women List


Patricia Dash

LUTHERVILLE, Md. (Apr. 19, 2021) - The Daily Record has named Patricia “Pattie” Dash, executive director of the National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland and Delaware (NKFMDDE), to its 2021 Maryland's Top 100 Women list.

Three hundred twenty-five women from across the state were nominated for this distinction, which recognizes “leaders in their professions who are actively involved in their communities while also mentoring the next generation of leaders,” according to Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, group publisher of The Daily Record.

Fischer-Huettner noted that the 2021 honorees had the added challenge of “navigating Maryland businesses through extraordinary times during the COVID-19 global pandemic– defining the new normal while leading their teams from survival to success."

Dash and the other honorees will receive their awards at a virtual celebration, May 13, and be profiled the following day in The Daily Record and online at TheDailyRecord.com.

“I am thrilled to be named on the Maryland Top 100 Women’s list for the second time in my professional career – especially during a particularly challenging year,” said Dash, who was named to the 2016 Maryland’s Top 100 Women list as well.

A 38-year non-profit veteran, Dash provides strategic vision and collaborative leadership for NKFMDDE. In addition to overseeing the Foundation’s programs, services and business operations, she directs advocacy and marketing initiatives to expand the organization’s reach and improve the health of those individuals living with kidney disease. Throughout the pandemic, she has led her team to stay on course while pivoting from in-person to virtual programming.

“It was critical that the Foundation continue to offer professional and patient education in our community that would meet the needs of our medical professionals and, most importantly, our patients and caregivers,” Dash said. “We are proud to have reached large audiences virtually at events that have either met or exceeded revenue expectations.”

Prior to joining NKFMDDE in 2015, Dash spent her entire career with Girl Scouts of Central Maryland - starting as an intern and steadily moving up to chief development officer. A Leadership Baltimore County board member and alum committee chair, Dash also serves on the Executive Alliance membership and marketing committees.

A graduate of both Leadership Baltimore County and the Network2000 Mentoring Program, Dash earned a Certificate of Non-Profit Management from the Mandel Center for Non-Profit Organizations - Case Western Reserve University. She also completed professional development training in preparing successful grant proposals at Indiana University’s Center of Philanthropy. Dash resides in Hanover, Pa. with her husband, Richard.
