I have been a parent educator since July 2018. My children are PAT alumni, all grown up and doing well! Our home visitor Sara provided crucial support to my family when I was a young dad, and I am delighted to have the opportunity to partner with families and support PAT the way it supported us!

Hobbies: I love riding bikes, cooking and eating a good meal and yakking with friends and family, and I never miss an opportunity to learn something new.

Suzy Green, Early Childhood Coordinator

I have been with Lawrence PAT since 2014. My first experience with PAT was 19 years ago as a young mom in the program! I went on to be an Early Head Start home visitor and child & family therapist before finding my way back to PAT. It is humbling to be a part of a family's parenting journey and be witness to their undeniable strength, love, and growth. 

Hobbies: Drinking coffee on my porch in my pajamas, taking our dog for walks, enjoying moments with my family, and hearing new perspectives that push me to grow.
