Patti holds a MS in Organization Development/ Instructional Design from Bowling Green University and a BA in Mass Communications from St. Bonaventure University. She enjoys reading, walking, rollerblading, and volunteering at local charities and her children’s schools. Patti, her husband Jeff, and their two children, Erica and Jake, live in Cincinnati, Ohio.
As a leader in professional education at Johnson & Johnson, Patti developed numerous education strategies integrated to drive business results, such as the design of the frequently benchmarked Delta V sales training program and a low fidelity box trainer called the TASKit which has been distributed in 27 countries worldwide.
Her innovative and interactive emodules and Apps are used by customers to enforce learning through multiple touch points. Her designs for in-person programs ensure long term retention by engaging the learner in simulations, small group work, and case reviews.
Patti’s strategic and leadership abilities have been featured in two recently published books, Inside the Box: A Proven System of Creativity for Breakthrough Results and Peer-to-Peer Leadership: Why the Network Is the Leader.
Patti is a friend, colleague, and former team member of mine at Johnson & Johnson. I consider Patti to be one of the most gifted strategic thinkers I know. She is an experienced user of the Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT) method, and she has contributed many unique innovations to the fields of customer and sales education.
