Patricia lived, worked, and studied in the Far East, Europe, and the Middle East during the 1960s and 70s. During the decade of the 80s, Patricia returned from the Middle East and began work on Capitol Hill where her legislative work covered the major issues of our time. During those years, she worked as legislative aide to Members of Congress Charles Bennett, Marjorie Margolies Mezvensky, and Corrine Brown. She left Capitol Hill in 2000 to work the Gore 2000 Campaign in Florida. Afterwards, she returned to Capitol Hill to manage a Capitol Hill intern program. After the 9-11 tragedy, Patricia left Capitol Hill to write about her experiences and to paint them on canvas.
In the last several years, she has written about her Middle East years, specifically, the Camp David Peace Accords as they evolved in Egypt, Israel, and the Sinai during the 70s and 80s. Her book entitled Unveilings, a Desert Journey relate these experiences. She now has updated that book with her latest book, Unveiled: Life, Love, and Religion in the Age of Petroleum.
Patricia is a graduate of University of Maryland, Tel Aviv University's Overseas Student Program, and Duke University's Master of Arts program. Currently, Patricia, together with co writer Shelvy Snead, has completed a screenplay based on Patricia's life.
