Official Bio

As an entrepreneur since 2006, and owner of several successful businesses, Patti continues to blaze new trails and take on challenges, finding ways to help families transition at the beginning of family life and at the end. Her new venture, Your End of Life Doula, is a doula coaching service specifically geared to patients facing terminal illnesses.  The concept was born out of her work with seniors and her observation of the suffering of her end-of-life clients and the gap that exists between hospitals, hospice, and the patient.  Its primary purpose is to empower individuals to make their own choices with regard to end of life.

Patti is also the owner of Comfort Keepers of Guilford, CT, the industry leader in providing in-home care that allows older adults and others needing assistance to live happy, fulfilling lives in the comfort of their own homes.  She also founded Legal-Eaze, a company that specializes in international adoption. Located in New York City, Legal-Eaze has assisted in the adoption process of over 10,000 children from countries such as China, Guatemala, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and has strived to help families navigate the difficult and ever changing landscape of international adoption laws.

“The country is aging at a rapid pace and there aren’t enough care givers to go around. We have this silver tsunami coming in. They are not as compliant as this generation. They don’t follow the doctor’s instructions, instead they’re going to question it, and they aren’t going to take no for an answer.” ~Patti

“Look at all the people that live in nursing homes. They are alive but are not living. Every time they get a cough then 911 gets a call. They go through their life savings! Is this what these people wanted? Let people die naturally instead of a prolonged death that costs millions of dollars.” ~Patti
