She is extremely excited about being able to offer her help, experiences and encouragement for other families going through the adoption process. Patty served in the military as a combat medic. Upon her discharge from the military, she earned her Social Work degree from Salisbury University. Patty has 20 plus years’ experience as a social worker.
