Patti is a graduate of The SEND Institute, which is a two year spiritual-psychological self-development program that meets over two years in six intensive learning modules. The modules focus successively on understanding the power of each of the seven chakras, and learning to balance and integrate the wisdom of these spiritual centers into one's life expression. In December of 2007 she received her Ph.D. in Esoteric Philosophy and Hermetic Science from The Ritberger Institute in California. She continues to study under the direction of Dr. Carol Ritberger who is a renowned Medical Intuitive, Hay House author and national lecturer. Patti is certified and licensed to administer The Ritberger Institute's Personality Color Indicator and is available to give workshops in personality typology based on the teachings of Dr. Carol Ritberger.
In 2012, Patti began working with paranormal investigators where she helps determine if a property has paranormal activity, and if so, helps to gather evidence via video and audio for the client. She has co-hosted several paranormal radio shows and has also appeared on the PBS Show, "Ask The Paranormal Expert".
