IF YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF INSIDE AND OUT, YOU CAN DO GREAT THINGS.
Patrice is a mom of four, works two jobs, and lives in Farmington, Missouri. Patrice is a dedicated teacher for the local school district’s alternative program during the morning and early afternoon. Her nominator, Allison, says, “She teaches multiple grades with special needs students, and loves them as her own.” After she finishes her school day, she transitions to boutique owner and heads over to finish her day working at her boutique. “As soon as she gets off work at the school, she heads to her store, Ophelia, that she has built from the ground up for the past eight years.”, Allison says (Allison works for Patrice at Ophelia).
“Patrice works so hard to keep beautiful clothing, accessories, purses, and more in her store so that women of all sizes have stylish options. She takes the time to get to know her customers individually and always puts her customers first. She works countless hours every day helping others, and then wakes up the next morning to do it all again”, Allison says.
Patrice says, “My journey through education and owning a boutique has always been about helping others feel confident, supported, loved, and independent. At Ophelia, I have signs & doors throughout that say, “Opening the Doors To Fashion For All Women”! I believe this with all my heart! If YOU feel good about YOURSELF inside and out, you can do great things... I hope to be a small part of that journey! Watching my students succeed and my customers smile is just a wonderful feeling and so good for the soul!
Patrice, your energy, dedication, and positivity lifts those you connect with daily. Thank you for showing up each and every day to bring joy, support, and love to others.
