Patrice joined the board in 2002 and feels extremely blessed to have worked alongside her father, Roy Deeb, until his death in 2004. She made a commitment to carry on his legacy, offering housing and supportive services to pregnant teens, mothers and their children.

She has focused her work life in sales, spending nine years in retail newspaper advertising at the St. Petersburg Times and 15 years in medical device sales for Becton Dickinson before taking some time off to raise her boys. She has recently become a Realtor and is enjoying working for her clients to help them find their dream homes among other real estate goals.

Patrice spends most of her free time involved with her children’s school activities, her church and family time. Patrice hopes to continue her father’s mission of developing a strong board of caring individuals to enhance the lives of the young women in need.
