Two of L.A.’s rising stars in finance and diplomacy will soon unite in wedded bliss, according to an engagement announcement by their parents.

Kyrra R. White, the daughter of Dan and Karen White, and Mr. Paris Patterson-Garner, the son of Lynn Patterson and the late Ralph Garner, are planning to marry, transforming their childhood friendship into a lifetime commitment. White and Patterson-Garner, both native Angelinos, have known each other since they were students at View Park Elementary School in South Los Angeles.

The young professionals have since achieved considerable success in their respective fields. White serves as a senior consultant at Deloitte Transactions and Business Analytics LLP where she advises clients on merger and acquisition related transactions. A graduate of Bentley University, she double-majored in Corporate Finance and Accounting and Global Perspectives.


Patterson-Garner, who earned a degree in political Science at the University of LaVerne, is completing his Master’s degree at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service.  He is also a Charles B. Rangel Fellow in International Affairs and will become a diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service upon graduation.
