Patrice has a background in education. She’s work in the field for a decade in higher education, middle and high school.

She holds undergraduate degrees in digital film making and screenwriting and a Master of Arts in Teaching. She has worked both in front of the camera as well as behind the camera, and managed to do this part-time along with education for the same length of time.

Patrice is a lover of words, so writing is one of her favorite things. She also enjoys sharing her knowledge and her stories. Helping others comes second nature to her, so when her son wanted to write a book at the age of nine, she saw to it that it happened. Using her teaching experience came in handy in showing him how to create his own book from conception to completion.

After coaching her teenager through scholarship research, college entry exams, money management, and revisiting life skill lessons, she knew she could help other parents and students, thus her most recent book was created.
