To achieve that goal,
Patti has built a strategic consulting company based on several key concepts of hospice care: wholeness, dignity, respect, and empowerment.As President of The Watershed Group, Patti uses these concepts to help organizations successfully manage change. She helps organizations turn potential crises into opportunities for business growth and financial stability so they may fulfill their mission.
Patti offers a wide range of expertise to her clients, drawing from over three decades of experience in healthcare and hospice. She customizes a blend of critical services to meet the specific needs of each client, including consulting, speaking, talent management and acquisition, strategic advising for executives, workshops, and retreats.
