Patricia Feria Lim


Patricia has coached and mentored C-suite executives at not for profit organizations and privately held companies. She brings broad experience across finance, operations and impact. What ties her experiences together is a commitment to building and growing high performing teams.

Patricia’s current VP of Operations role at Thinking Machines Data Science precisely draws from all these experiences. She began her career in Wall Street at Citi and Bridgewater Associates. She returned to Southeast Asia in 2012 and joined Teach for the Philippines (TFP)’s Senior Leadership Team. At TFP, Patricia served as Head of Finance and Strategy, leading efforts across Finance, Data and Impact Assessment, Public and Private Partnerships, as well as Talent Acquisition and Human Resources. She currently sits on its board.

Patricia earned a BA in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania, where she graduated cum laude.

Patricia is based in Manila, Philippines and outnumbered by men (her husband and 2 sons) in her family. Her compulsions include clay wheel throwing, a meditative workout, messing around in the kitchen, and (constantly) reorganizing her home.
