My name is Patrice and I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, California. With my mother being the youngest of seven and father being the youngest of 16, I was no stranger to kids. I automatically took the babysitting role to help out all of my older cousins while they worked to finish college. I went to school for American deaf studies, but found myself stuck. I wanted change but didn’t know where to turn to. A fellow deaf studies student introduced me to We Rock The Spectrum and I was pleasantly surprised how much I fit in and how quickly I adapted. I saw the vision and benefits of We Rock the Spectrum and how it can help ALL children. I absolutely love going to work every day and earning the trust of parents and the kids. This work provides such a rewarding feeling.
