NOTE: Commentary is made as a private citizen and not as Regional Coordinator for Silent No More or Leader of Rachel's Hope, unless otherwise stated.


I was born to a military family in Wimpole Park, England and traveled extensively during my childhood. I worked for the federal government as an auditor for the Department of Labor and Veteran's Administration Offices of Inspector General, as an Elementary School Office Manager for the San Jacinto Unified School District, served ten years in the U.S. Army Reserves and retired from my job as a background investigator four years ago.  Retirement has provided the opportunity to complete certification through Dr. H. Norman Wright in grief/crisis/trauma counseling which is utilized in workshops and retreats sponsored by Rachel's Hope Healing Ministry.

I am a published author of devotionals, light romance and suspense, a member of the Association of Christian Therapists, serve as Regional Coordinator for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and the Assistant Director of Rachel's Hope Healing Ministries.  I publicly share my story of redemption in a variety of venues, have been a guest on Immaculate Heart and Blogtalk Radio, Radio Maria, Cradle My Heart and Abortion Hurts/God Heals and also appear in two documentaries, “The Sidewalk Chronicles” and "Hush". 

I live in Vista, CA with my husband and am a caregiver for my uncle. I have five children (one living son and step-daughter, one son lost through miscarriage and a son and daughter lost through abortion. My husband and I have been blessed with four beautiful granddaughters.  I'm a prolific blogger and reader, and proudly admit to being a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan and Fantasy Football fanatic. My travel adventures include Spain, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Fiji, South Korea and almost all states - including Hawaii and Alaska.


  1. Hi Patti, I have a football devotional that my son, an NFL player, and I wrote. It is going to be published by Harvest House in August. Could I schedule a blog post on your blog then. Russell Wilson was his teammate for the Badgers while they were in college. :-) Please contact me hjmichael at or through Facebook. Holly Michael
