As FRONTLINE's assistant director of audience development, Patrice helps powerful investigative storytelling get seen, heard and read, and works to reach new audiences in new places. She's obsessed with surfacing and writing about FRONTLINE's journalism on multiple platforms in ways that make other people as excited to engage with it as she is. She also manages traditional communications and publicity efforts for the series.
Before joining FRONTLINE in 2013, Patrice spent four years as the first-ever communications staffer at The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship, a leadership development and community service nonprofit focused on eliminating health disparities. She also spent several years working in book publishing at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, where she specialized in promoting narrative nonfiction.
Patrice is a graduate of Tufts University, where she wrote magazine-style features as a member of the school's then-fledgling web team, served as editor-in-chief of Tufts' daily newspaper, and interned with the Associated Press. She also attended Columbia Journalism School's Publishing Course.
