Inherit Your Brave™ is at heart of what instigating Bravery is all about. Being “enough” is paramount to Patti’s spiritual awakening. In 1996, Patti was in an automobile accident resulting in severe back and neck injuries. Soon after, she underwent surgery for a hernia — and her doctor accidentally cut a nerve in her leg. Following was over 3 decades of descent into painkillers and alcohol in an effort to mask her physical and emotional pain. Add to that an overdose at her garage sale, where her children had to call 911, and an operation went horribly wrong in 2009, and you have the perfect storm. Patti believes these were God’s Interventions. She shares her experience, strength and hopes to those who have yet to find their voice in dealing with the ways life can be challenging and filled with fear.
Patti is certified as a Mental Health First Aid ™graduate and values her work with those dealing with the emotional issues we cannot see.
Through it all, Patti has tremendous gratitude for each of these events, for she believes that the only way out is through. We are given the keys that unlock the doors to the next room. It is our choice as to whether we want to enter.
