    In 1996, Patti founded Legal-Eaze, a company that specializes in international adoption. Located in NYC, Legal-Eaze has assisted in the adoption process of over 10,000 children from countries such as China, Guatemala, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, to name a few. Knowing that her skills in helping families transition at the beginning of family life would suit her well in many areas, Patti decided upon serving seniors and their families. After careful consideration, she chose to open a Guilford branch of Comfort Keepers in 2009. Patti started the agency from her kitchen table and grew it to over $1.2M in annual sales before selling it in June, 2017.

    Patti founded Your End of Life Doula (www.yourendoflifedoula.com), a doula coaching service specifically geared to patients facing terminal illnesses. The concept was born out of her work with seniors and her observation of the suffering of her end-of-life clients and the gap that exists between hospitals, hospice, and the patient. Its primary purpose is to empower individuals to make their own choices with regard to end of life.
