After spending ten years in Africa leading humanitarian global health projects and counseling hundreds of women in their faith, family, and fitness, I came back to the states with my family and started a successful health and wellness business: a fitness studio with a staff of twelve, and a childhood obesity prevention practice which has facilitated programs in over 35 schools throughout Boston, MA; New York City, and Newark, NJ through my non-profit organization, Move it Nation, Inc.

Today, I am a professor, cultural health, diversity, and equity expert, author of Purge it with Patti a mindful eating book, and the creator of health and self-care programs for busy people like you: business owners, educators, students, and entrepreneurs who work hard but often find themselves burnt out, stressed out, overeating, not sleeping, and eventually succumbing to sickness and disease. I also research and write scholarly articles about cultural health, body politics and social media, and the connection between health, hair, and self-care among black and brown women and girls.
