Andrea Patten

Actually, I'm an indie author who feeds my writing habit by helping others look good. A dot-connector on steroids. An irreverent problem-solver with a history of creating experiences to yield unusual insights. Setting the stage for lasting change. I want all kids to be able to grow up knowing they are safe and loved. Living my own happily-ever-after: writing, coaching, training & building little websites. I love connecting great people, products & ideas. Sales people, small business owners, clinical team leaders, other writers... I work with people to help clean up the messes that live in their heads but show up in blogs, social media strategies, non-profit boards, direct sales teams, websites or other relationships. Passionate about helping people access opportunities & showcase their talents, the years I spent working in addictions & family violence intervention make me a great editor for life stories. In "other lives" I've been a marketing geek, a therapist, a program director, a team leader, a waitress, a ski instructor & a cowgirl. Before that I fingerpainted & ate paste. I love dogs.
