Bios - Board of Directors

Adrien Helm 

Introduced to the organization in 2016 as a tutor for almost 2 years, Adrien joined the board of directors in 2020. She believes in supporting LCLC, and its mission to improve the quality of life of citizens in Lee County. Adrien is a local Realtor with Holland Home Sales and is passionate about guiding her clients through the home buying and selling process as well as educating them to make informed decisions. Ms. Helms is also an active member of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce, Auburn Chamber of Commerce, and Auburn Young Professionals. She knows that part of her role includes being a local tour guide, which means that she must know her community and be deeply involved. Being a native to the community, Adrien feels strongly about making Auburn/Opelika even more wonderful than it already is!

Patricia (Pat) Stewart

Ms. Stewart is an advocate and supporter of the organization. As co-founder and Principal of Innovative Healthcare Solutions, Pat was responsible for the quality of consulting services provided to Innovative Healthcare Solutions clients. Working across the United States with healthcare executives and her consultants, she played a key role in growing, marketing, and managing the practice’s consulting services. Under Pat’s guidance from 2000 to 2016, Innovative Healthcare Solutions, Inc. received multiple national awards as a leader in healthcare technology consulting. Pat sold her healthcare technology consulting company in 2016 and has retired from business. Throughout her career, she has tried to combine her business skills with her desire to help others and “give back” in a meaningful way.


One of Pat’s goals for her retirement has been to dedicate more time for positive change in our community. She provides her professional expertise to LCLC as well as the Food Bank Garden, Stop Hunger Now, Christian Women’s Job Corps of Lee County, United Way of Central Alabama, and the YWCA of Central Alabama. Pat is a Certified Public Accountant with degrees in Biology and Accounting from Auburn University and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
