    READ ABOUT PATRICIA

    Patricia Klier graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in Advertising and immediately launched into a public relations career, working with authors, speakers and consultants on their book campaigns and publicity.

    After the birth of her daughter, Patricia switched gears and started freelance writing for AOL.com and the publication, Gainesville Magazine; a rewarding role that allowed her to stay home with her children. Today, she is proud to be a part of The Childhood League Center’s PLAY Project. She is passionate about learning, travel, photography, reading, running and golf.

    She was really drawn to The Childhood League Center’s goal of helping children of all abilities reach their full potential. She says, “I love being able to send my daughter, Amelia, to preschool here and watch her grow! I love reading to my kids and one of our favorite books is called “Beautiful Oops” which is about turning artistic “mistakes” into wonderful masterpieces. It has a positive message that can be applied to life in general.”
