A native of Kinston, North Carolina, Pat is affectionately and rightfully known in the community as MOM. At the age of 15 she accepted Christ in her life and one year later preached her initial message, titled "The Good Ground". That sermon was the beginning of her journey in the word during trying times. MOM didn't realize the trials she faced throughout her young adult years would one day serve as a comfort to many young adults, especially single mothers. It was during those years, she learned that God is a God of RESTORATION. Just as God's Word has promised, he has brought her through all of her trials, healed and restored her heart, and increased her honor. It was at this turning point, she made the decision to move FORWARD in the purpose and plans God has for her life.
MOM has served as a response public servant for over 25 years in counting. She has taught at various seminars and held several leadership positions in District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina churches. In October 2002, MOM was awarded the "Faithful & Dedicated Volunteer of the Year Award" from the Good News Jail and Prison Ministries in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. This award is considered the highest volunteer award anyone can earn in the state of Maryland.
She is currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Leadership and Organizational Design from Walden University. She has earned a Masters of Business Administration in Information Systems Management, a Bachelor of Science in Computer Systems Management, and an Associates of Applied Science in Office Technology/Executive Secretary. She completed every academic accolade amidst being a dedicated single parent with a full-time job.
Proud and dedicated mother of three Mighty Men of Valor, and two Daughter-in-laws, MOM developed a great passion for mentoring young Men and Women. "Guiding young Men and Women in such a way, where they can live a victorious life, while just being themselves is my goal," says Pat. God gave her the vision of Mother of Many (MOM) Incorporated in 2002, but the vision was not made plain until 2004.
Just as Paul spoke of Rufus' mother in Romans 16:13, many young adults have revered her as their MOM.
