Modeling

Patti originally entered the world of pageantry as a way to fundraise and advocate for the veteran organizations that she supports.

Her official platform is Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially-adapted homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 veterans. ​She has volunteered, championed and fundraised for the nonprofit throughout her reigns and in her personal life, and is a designated Official Proud Supporter of the organization.

Ministry

Patti has been an ordained reverend for almost fifteen years. 

Intrigued by theology and its overlap with science, she has independently studied a number of religions. Growing up, she was surrounded by Catholic, Christian, and Jewish influences and identifies as a non-denominational Christian.

Patti recognizes that everyone's path to religion and spirituality is different and deeply personal; however, her view is simple, “in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you" (Matthew 7:12).

She has served as an officiant at countless wedding ceremonies and has lent her support to organizations that assist children and veterans. Some of these organizations include: Homes for Our Troops, Save the Children, St. Jude's Research Hospital, Heifer International, and Murphslife.​​
