Patricia lives in Elizabeth with her husband Victor and three children, Lily, Angelo and Michael. Once her youngest child entered first grade and her eldest into college, Patricia set her sights on achieving her GED as her diploma from Ecuador is not recognized here. She studied and received a Paraprofessional Certification, which entitles her to work with children and in the school system. She is currently working in Elizabeth as a Teacher’s Assistant in grade 6.
