MPI is more than just a chapter of industry professionals. It’s a chapter of people who care. On Dec. 3, we joined together to show our Potomac Pride on Giving Tuesday — a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity.

This year, we are proud to partner with our local Mid-Atlantic Make a Wish. Parents, health professionals and volunteers agree that a wish empowers wish kids to fight harder against their illnesses. Every wish brings a little more kindness and joy into the world.

Patty Lewis
Marketing Consultant
Millennium Marketing Solutions
Patty Lewis has been in the marketing industry for more than 20 years. She has been a marketing consultant for Millennium Marketing Solutions, a woman-owned business offering a complete line of marketing solutions, for the past eight years and owned a business prior to that. Lewis' best career advice is her motto, which is to always work hard so that you can play harder and to do something you enjoy because life is too short not to be happy with your career. When she is not in the office, she is on the road visiting clients, and odds are she is on the golf course. 
Born in Washington, D.C., Lewis then moved to Annapolis, Maryland, where she attended South River High School and the University of Maryland. She lived in Annapolis until 2015 when she got married and moved to the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
