Patricia is a passionate educator. This winter, I invited her as a guest lecturer to my social gerontology course at Brock University. The class was filled with 80 students majoring in public and community health, and medical health sciences. Her talk was informative and insightful and full of practical and philosophical advice to young students, based on her extensive experience working with seniors and community organizations. She was very friendly and engaging, and successfully provoked students’ active participation in the class discussion. She also helped some students by providing them with career-oriented advice directed at becoming a community educator. It was very evident that Patricia is an experienced and excellent educator, well-placed to become a first-rate consultant with her broad network in the Niagara community and beyond. Given her passion for education, her genuine caring personality, and her wide range of knowledge in community-based health promotion and education, I will definitely invite Patricia to my courses in the future, and recommend her to other educational institutions and community organizations as an educator, a consultant, or a collaborator for research project.

``The Intentionally Brave course was exactly what I needed. The content, challenges and visualizations that were provided guided me towards breaking through some of what was holding me back and towards a braver version of me. The course finds a delicate balance between introspection and motivating action that can help propel anyone forward.``
During the years I have had the pleasure of knowing Patricia (Regier Educational Services), I had opportunities to work with her on a number of post graduate projects. In all instances, she was hardworking, efficient, and effective in her work and responsibilities. Tricia is very intuitive and possesses the unique ability to bring together polarized diverse groups. Her ability was instrumental in helping bring about group collaboration on multiple occasions. Tricia has a great passion for education, and sharing her knowledge. My students at Niagara College greatly benefited from her dynamic presentation on Falls Prevention. The students reflected on how her interactive presentation had a great impact on them, and how the information they had received would affect their immediate and future practice. I look forward to future opportunities to work and collaborate with Patricia.

As the Ontario provincial lead for the Canadian Falls Prevention Curriculum, I have had the opportunity to work with Patricia (Regier Educational Services). She has been an invaluable partner who, as an instructor, has contributed to the continuous delivery and improvement of the curriculum. Patricia has created teaching resources that are now included as a standard part of the training manuals (nationally). In her role as Master Facilitator, she has allowed us to develop a new generation of instructors ensuring future delivery of the course. I always turn to Tricia for her expertise in Adult Learning Principles and creative teaching strategies.

“I worked alongside Patricia for over 7 years. She is an exceptional leader and teacher. Her ease and professionalism in dealing with staff and colleagues is beyond excellent. Everyone is comfortable to go to Patricia for help or guidance; which she gave without hesitation and always made them feel comfortable. Patricia was the Manager of the Safety at Home Program and started this program from the ground-up. She made this program what it is today. A successful and busy program which has made a difference in the lives of many seniors in our community.
