Although Patti now resides in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Ed Zollman, she definitely has Northwest roots. Patti was a student of popular Northwest organist Dick Kimball for many years. She also studied with Jonas Nordwall and worked for Bob McCutchin who owned McCutchin Music in Lynnwood, Washington.
During the 1970's, Patti played at several local Pizza & Pipes restaurants including: Greenwood Pizza and Pipes, Bellevue Pizza and Pipes, and occasionally Tacoma Pizza and Pipes. She also played at Bob Koontz's Pipe Dream Restaurant in Burien. In 1979, Patti moved to Denver to work for the Organ Grinder Restaurant there.
Patti is married to Ed Zollman (son of famous Northwest organist Eddie Zollman) who installed the well-known Wilcox, now Wilcox 4/48 Wurlitzer in Gig Harbor. He has also installed computer relays for Olympia's Washington Center and Salem's Elsinore Theatre where Patti and Ed also teamed up to do tonal voicing.
