Patricia has fought extraordinarily hard to protect the rights of girls. For this reason she is advancing her career to pursue a Doctorate in Sociology at the University of Missouri, specializing in sexual violence against adolescent girls in Jamaica.

As the Executive Director and Co-founder at EVE for Life ( an NPO) which focuses on vulnerable women’s and girls' issues such as sexual violence, reproductive rights and people with HIV, for years Patricia has been instrumental in advancing the rights of women and girls. She also Conducted ‘Nuh Guh Deh’ (Don’t Go There), a campaign to end the sexual abuse of female children. Ultimately, Patricia's interests lie in playing an even greater role in advocacy ensuring that the rights of girls are protected and upheld at all levels of society.
