Patti unexpectedly left the corporate world behind to become a homeschooling mom of 5 and nobody was as surprised as she to discover how much she loves her new role. Doing her best to keep it together in a life of constant chaos Patti would describe herself as an eclectic mess maker, lousy crafter, book lover, autism mom, insomniac & eternal optimist whose enthusiasm in the kitchen far outweighs her abilities. She has made quick and simple Halloween costumes on Global BC, been quoted in Parents magazine, and writes for a variety of sites and publications. Her own website, RedheadedPatti.com is full of family-friendly fun aimed at parents like her. Fuelled by the food she knows is bad for her, Pattis greatest ambition is to drink an entire cup of tea, without interruption, while it's still hot.
