• Gerard Wicklin:(Parent/Treasury at Reiter Affiliated Companies) "Patti Strickland is a theater professional, an artist and teacher. If you are interested in studying theater, there is no one better equipped to lead you on this journey than Patti. But she is not to be taken lightly. She is serious about her art, and if you study with her, it will not be a superficial endeavor. For her, art is a necessary corrective to the disintegrative forces in the world. She is demanding, probing, inquisitive, she will challenge you, she will disturb you, she will upset your settled perceptions, she will recreate your understanding of yourself and your place in the world community. You will see connections you had not imagined, and when you think you have reached the acme of your art, Patti will lead you another step ahead and you will find yourself at the start of a further great, tectonic upheaval. If you are prepared to partake in that type of journey, seek out Patti and don’t look back."

I look forward to what she does next, and I wholeheartedly recommend Patti to any organization looking for people with knowledge, passion and leadership."

Thank you Patricia!"
