Patty and her husband Tom have been happily married for 34 years and are blessed with three amazing children: Kip, Karlyn and Kelsie and two great son-in-laws Mike and Brandon. In the last three years they were given the greatest gift for parents, two adorable grand children Thomas and Addison. Patty and Tom are parishioners at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton of Fort Wayne, In. She has been involved with CRHP, Eucharistic ministry, RCIA, and bible study. All of these activities have helped her grow in her faith. However, after a trip to Rome for the Beatification of Mother Teresa, she realized she wanted to share her catholic faith. Patty is a Registered Nurse at the Allergy and Asthma Center since 1977. She was certified as a Nutrition and Wellness Consultant in 2008. In her role as a health care provider, she is able to give to others, but receives much more in return. She experienced many years ago that physical activity and healthy nutrition keep you balanced in life physically and mentally. When hearing about SoulCore and attending a training, it was obvious that this was exactly what she wanted to be a part of. It truly intertwined her physical, mental and spiritual exercise together, in a one hour session. This is definitely a way to share her love of exercise and love of her Catholic faith with others. She has no idea how God or the Blessed Mother are going to use her, but she is willing and ready to begin this new journey in leading SoulCore.
PATTY’S FAVORITE SCRIPTURE VERSE: Phillipians 4: 6-7
I am a daughter of Christ. I am a wife of just over 5 years. I am a mother of 2 children, a daughter who is 17 and a son who is 18. I also have a stepdaughter who is 14. I do not work outside the home but there is enough to keep me busy from volunteering as a youth minister to making all our bread and pasta from scratch. I enjoy sewing and working with leather I knit some and crochet and enjoy making simple jewelry. I enjoy running even though my lungs don’t always allow me to go far. I love to share my faith with others and I’m overjoyed when people come back to the Church after being away as I was a prodigal child for some time. The saints that I hang tight to are St Joan of Arc, St Theresa of Lisieux, St Catherine of Siena, St Catherine of Alexandria, St Teresa of Avila, St Scolastica, and St Padre Pio. The Scripture I hang close to is – Isaiah 42:1, Luke 6:13, Mark 5:4, 2 Timothy 3:16

Carrie has been a Catholic and passionate about her faith her whole life. Gods grace has led her on a slow journey towards complete abandonment to the divine will in favor of her own will. Mary’s “fiat” is the perfect example of this dependence and teaches us how to cooperate with the graces that God consistently offers us. Carrie is passionate about health and wellness and helping others to see and remove obstacles that assist the flow of this grace in our lives. Soulcore provided her an opportunity to grow deeper in this relationship of trust in Jesus through Mary.
Carrie is a wife and mom to 6 girls and 4 boys. She enjoys running and has ran several marathons as a way to prioritize her physical health. She loves spending time with her family traveling and doing anything outdoors together, especially camping and hiking. She is a huge advocate of the transforming power of the eucharist, adoration and the rosary. She loves sharing the beauty and depth of the Catholic faith and works part time in youth ministry at her parish St. Charles Borromeo.
