Name: Moller, Patricia
Current Position: Ambassador
Patricia N. Moller has served as the US Ambassador to Guinea since October 9, 2009.
A native of Arkansas, Moller joined the State Department as a Foreign Service Officer in April 1987, following 10 years as an investment banker and tax shelter specialist with Smith Barney. Her first Foreign Service assignment was to the consular section in Munich. From 1989-1991, she served in Consulate General Madras, India, as the management officer. From 1991-1996 she worked in Washington, DC, at the State Department, first as a watch officer, then as staff aide to the Assistant Secretary for Intelligence and Research, and finally for two years as Vietnam Desk Officer during the days of bilateral negotiations to reestablish diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Following Serbian language training, she served in Embassy Belgrade as management officer. Her tour in Serbia coincided with the crisis in Kosovo, which resulted in Moller, the ambassador and other remaining embassy officials being evacuated just as US Navy jets participated in NATO air strikes against Serbian military forces.
From 2000-2002, Moller served as Deputy Chief of Mission in Yerevan, Armenia. Her posting to Georgia began in August, 2002, when she traveled to Tbilisi to begin three years as Deputy Chief of Mission to Ambassador Richard Miles.
She then served as U.S. ambassador to Burundi from March 2006 until 2009.
