Andrea Patten


The common thread through all of my work is creative problem-solving. After growing up in a highly entrepreneurial family most of my adult life (so far!) has been spent working in human services where my unusual niche was program development and start-ups.

In addition to providing tools for women and families in the direct sales field, people in recovery from alcoholism, addictions and family violence hold a special place in my heart. I create custom workshops for small groups.

I'm a Mom and a grandma. I love dogs.
