Meet Your Local Team

Artemisia Patterson, District Manager


My name is Artemisia Patterson and I am so excited to be a part of the AlphaBEST team as the District Manager for the Washington DC Programs. Prior to joining AlphaBEST, I worked for the Department of Defense and private programs as an early childhood educator/ advocate for children and families. I am passionate about quality and enjoy working with teaching teams to improve the care and education that children receive. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my three AMAZING kids, reading, and baking. I look forward to building great relationships with the staff, children, and families of AlphaBEST!
