She managed and directed campaigns for federal and statewide candidates and oversaw statewide volunteer recruitment efforts across multiple states. Patrice has also stood by, supported, and advocated for communities as a reproductive health advocate. Her passion for combatting maternal and infant mortality in underserved/minority communities led her to serve as a lactation counselor and birth/postpartum doula. She brings that same passion to other HLM projects focused on community health, maternal health, and health equity.
