Meet Me

Storyteller. Speaker. Spiritual Director. 

I believe that writing is both a mirror and medicine for the human soul. I share words and works to help people heal, grow, and flourish as God’s image-bearer.

A contemplative at heart, I am also a storyteller and spiritual director in the Ignatian tradition. My work intersects where God’s story meets our story. My mission is to use all that God has given me to help others discover and experience God’s love, grace, and mercy through Christ Jesus. My vision is to inspire humans to live as bold, balanced, beautiful creations of God. My folks are humans who may be broken but not bitter, who may be bitter but want to be better, who may be hurting but not hopeless, who may be hopeless but want to be hopeful. Anyone who wants to meet God at the well.

I am ordained in the Baptist tradition. I hold a Doctor of Ministry in Transformational Leadership from Boston University and a Master of Divinity from Wesley Theological Seminary. I also have a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from Goddard College and a Master of Sacred Theology from Drew University. I received my certificate in spiritual direction from the Sustainable Faith School of Spiritual Direction.

I have been wordsmithing and storytelling since my sixth-grade English teacher taught me the power of words. To pay the bills, I work in communications, training, and administration as the Founder and Creative Director of Solutions by Patrice, www.solutionsbypatrice.com.

I was born and raised in the church, gave my life to Christ at eight years old, and am still active in the body of Christ as both a disciple and minister of the Gospel. In all that I do, I remain passionately Christian and compassionately interfaith.
