Patty (as she was known by friends and family) was born in Bridgeport Connecticut on August 8, 1960, the second of five children of Florence Payne Roberts and raised in Camden, NJ. A graduate of the Camden City school system, Patricia believed in the value of education; so that belief coupled with her love of reading led her to pursue a career in nursing. She began her career as an LPN in 1993, then furthered her education by becoming an RN in 2002 at the Helene Fuld School of Nursing (Blackwood, NJ) and finally graduating from Drexel University in 2015; where she earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing. Honing her skills as a nurse through varied work history; Patty worked as a nurse at Cooper Hospital as a Cardiac nurse, in long-term care, corrections, and psychiatric facilities.
