As a young girl Patricia yearned for more of God than her religion offered. After much searching, in January 1973 she made Jesus Christ her Lord and Savior.
Patricia soon excelled in various management positions, but in January 1997 she found herself disabled and unable to work. In great physical pain her doctor prescribed a new patch: fentanyl. Having never allowed herself to be controlled in any way she was suddenly launched into addiction. Then, on May 25, 1999, at the Awake America Conference, she was completely healed of her pain and delivered from the drug!
Newly recommitted to God, Patricia became employed at North Providence Assembly of God under Pastor Pasco Manzo and later enrolled in The River Bible Institute in Florida. Impressed by her resume, she was hired as School Administrator and to instruct students on practical ministry. Upon graduation she assisted students in acquiring non-profit status, processing tax returns, and maintaining ministry records.
Once back in New England, as a Financial Administrator for Non-Profits, Patricia was called to Teen Challenge Rhode Island Transitional Home as Start-up Manager. Having volunteered at TCRI for two decades, suddenly God flashed all her past experiences before her eyes, confirming how He had prepared her all along “for such a time as this” and He has increased that blessing by adding Direct Care at the Women’s Home to her routine. She says, “God is fulfilling more of my heart’s desire!”
