Patricia is thrilled to be a part of the Help Me Grow Alabama team as the NorthwestAlabama Care Coordinator! Her unique qualifications for this position include a B.A. in Psychology, experience as a preschool teacher, and years of working with individuals with disabilities. Patricia has served her community as an active volunteer in many different capacities, and she has also served on a local school board for several years. Through these experiences, she has seen the tremendous impact of early intervention in a young child’s life, and for her, there is no greater purpose than to help a child reach his/her optimal development. She wholeheartedly believes Frederick Douglass’s words to be true: “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” Help Me Grow improves lives, and she is grateful to be a part of this process.
