About Pati

Before being thrust into this industry due to the sudden decline of my mother, I was ignorant and blind to the many challenges our senior population face each day, as well as the loneliness and isolation. During my mother's journey I became a Certified Activity Director which I then combined with my professional singing experience to provide entertainment, music therapy and activity programs for seniors throughout the Sacramento area. This opened my eyes and heart to the growing need for quality care, programs and services for this population.

Because of my desire to learn more and better understand how to serve this industry, I became a Certified Senior Advisor, and have since added Social Service Designee as well. Within the senior care and services industry I have held positions in marketing, community relations and life enrichment. In addition, I provide marketing, PR and event consulting through the senior industry and beyond.
