Patrice Little encourages audiences to "Recognize Your Genius" and to live courageously and purposefully beyond life's challenges.
Patrice's personal journey from victim to victor over child abuse has prepared her to educate audiences who may know someone who is keeping their abuse a secret, as well as victims themselves.
As a board certified family nurse practitioner with masters of science in nursing (MSN FNP-BC) and a survivor of child abuse, Patrice is uniquely qualified to speak to general audiences and to medical and counseling professionals.
As a professional and as a person who lives successfully beyond her past abuse, she speaks to the subjects of generational issues, overcoming adversity, development, women's issues, and work culture / environment.
Prior to becoming a nurse, Patrice taught secondary science for three years and served on committees for the Ninth Grade Academy Retention Program, the Physical Science Curriculum Committee, and Academic Decathlon. Patrice currently provides primary care at a local correctional facility where she is known for her compassion and genuine interest in continuity of care after incarceration and civility.
Her message of resilience and passion for bringing restoration to the community is necessary for the complexities of today. Patrice personally and professionally knows how the restructuring of life after any challenge is a work in progress.
At her suburban Atlanta home, Patrice enjoys freestyle dancing with her family on Friday nights, running road races, eating Jamaican food, and volunteering at various school and community events.
