Volunteer Spotlight: Patrice

Patrice PhotoPatrice first graced Calvary with her presence just a couple of months ago, but it feels like she’s been a member of the Calvary family for years! Patrice serves as an Evening Volunteer on Tuesday nights and has jumped in to support the residents of Calvary by managing ever-changing needs with ease. Calvary staff members describe her as “engaged, punctual, warm, and easy-going. Patrice is a doer–always looking for a project!” Thank you, Patrice, for your dedication and commitment to the women of Calvary!

I’ve complete 2 marathons, 3 half marathons, a duathlon (run/bike/run), and several 10-miler and 5K races.  One day I’ll do a triathlon.
