PATRICIA V. DAVIS’s aim is to leave her spot of the world just a little bit better than it was before she got there. She focuses on that through her writing, speaking, philanthropic work, and the promoting of other people whom she believes have that same goal.
Patricia is the author of the best-selling "Harlot's Sauce: A Memoir of Food, Family, Love, Loss and Greece", and "The Diva Doctrine: 16 Universal Principles Every Woman Needs to Know," which was written as a fun guide to support her fellow women in their quest for self-esteem and life fulfillment.

Her speaking and writing style is informative, sometimes satirical, yet most often humorous.

Daring to be a Diva: The Power Strategies for Woman You Can Use Even When You're in the Kitchen for the Day
The problem with empowerment seminars is that they are conducting by women who seem superhuman: They are almost too successful and slim, making Oprah Winfrey look like Jenny Jones and Martha Stewart look like the main character on that old TV show, Roseanne. Well, how is that supposed to make us feel empowered rather than inept? But this workshop is conducted by Patricia, an expert in failure. And if she could turn her life around, YOU can, too. This inspiring talk workshop shows you how.
From Desperate Divorcee to True Diva: Rising from the Ashes of Your Broken Marriage
It's easy to feel like a failure after a divorce. But this workshop demonstrates for participants how the end of a marriage can (and should be) the beginning of so much more. With warmth, compassion and humor Patricia takes us on a journey of self-reflection and a list of to-dos which will leave attendees inspired to live their best lives.
