Patrice Kealy has shared her knowledge and love of science, history and the arts with children and adults in many settings throughout New Jersey for over 50 years. She has shared the surprises of marine biology with school groups for the NJ Marine Sciences Consortium at Sandy Hook, NJ, served as the lead sailing instructor for the Monmouth County Park System, and as an environmental educator and artist with the Hackensack Meadowlands Environmental Education Center. She’s been an interpretive Park Ranger and supervisor of the Millbrook Village historic site for the Delaware Water Gap NRA, and has even crossed the Atlantic on a sailing vessel as a participant in the Soviet American Sail, a combined diplomatic and environmental expedition. While she explores the natural world, Patrice expresses her passion for the wonders of creation as an avid photographer, artist and writer. She is also a published illustrator and is currently writing a middle grade fiction book.
