Patti grew up in Park Forest, Illinois. She studied Early Childhood Education at Prairie State Community College and Illinois State University. She retired from teaching in 2015 after heading her own Christian Preschool in Joliet for 16 years and teaching at KLA Schools of Plainfield for 2 years. God was so good how He led Patti to Minooka UMC! She had desired to work in a Christian environment again to serve the people of God and….here she is. In Patti’s free time, she enjoys time with her husband of 25 years and her two adult children. Photography, crafting and selling Lularoe allows her creative side to shine. Patti is humbled by how God has used her during her life to touch others…what a wonderful journey it has been so far.
