Internship Program Assistant
Patrice came to A Rocha in 2016 as an intern in Sustainable Agriculture and Food and Hospitality, thinking it was one stop as part of a volunteer and travel year. After a term of experiencing the deep welcome of the A Rocha Brooksdale community and the holistic expressions of shalom she found there, she couldn’t bring herself to leave. She loves the internship program and the way it has potential to transform and deepen interns’ relationships to God, people, and the earth. Bringing a desire to see the earth and its’ inhabitants restored to wholeness, she works as the internship program administrator and lives with interns. In her spare time she enjoys delighting in where she lives by visiting the farm animals, adventuring with interns, making and eating super tasty food, and reading up on psychology, spirituality and health.
