Patty Poet-Lajoie (Patty Poet Lajoie)

Joined 2 years ago from Imler, PA




I am a small business owner and also a health care professional.  Together, my husband and I own a small farm that we have transformed into a weekend guest getaway, attracting reservations from all over the US and Canada. We grow much of our own food and are ready to step over the boundary into small farm animals largely as an attraction and to teach our guests more about the farming industry and where their food comes from.   I have a business administration degree and also a license as a Physical Therapist Assistant and for the past 6 years I have worked in home health treating patients who have undergone orthopedic surgeries or are deconditioned and confined to their homes. I have worked closely in hospice coordinating the services of volunteers, a very critical aspect of any licensed hospice agency. In addition, I have been writing professionally for 28 years and have published articles for children including, “ A Spider’s Hidden Talent,” and “Two Sets of Eyelids and a Hump”.  I have written over 100 articles for local newspapers, focusing on human interest and success.  I have won a local award on historical research and published articles on local events, community programs, exercise programs for older citizens, fiction stories based on fact and research on antiques, to name a few.

My primary focus now is to engage in teaching all the things I have learned in my careers. I have an abundance of knowledge in many fields, and lots of practical experience which I plan to offer out to those looking for further information on a wealth of practical topics.   

My family supports me and smiles when I use them as an anecdotal example. But much of my experience has evolved around the trials and errors of raising a family and now I can sit back and reminisce a bit over the successful tracks each one of them has embarked on and know that my experiences have helped to guide them successfully down their chosen road.
