GiveLove, Patricia's nonprofit, is deeply engaged with community-led sanitation projects to treat and compost waste, improve public health, and create jobs around recycling. Patricia now travels to Haiti on a regular basis to oversee the foundation's work while also developing new partnerships and scalable strategies. Her hands-on approach to ecological sanitation has inspired some of the most well-known experts in the field to join her in helping to accelerate the progression in Haiti.
Aside from her work with GiveLove, Patricia continues to work as an actress in various television and film roles. She filmed a recurring role for HBO's Boardwalk Empire, opposite Steve Buscemi.
Patricia completed seven seasons as Allison Dubois on the critically-acclaimed series Medium, for which she received numerous accolades, including the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in Drama Series. Most recently, Patricia won a 2015 Oscar and Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her performance in the movie Boyhood. Patricia used her Oscar acceptance speech as a platform to bring awareness to women's rights in the workplace, a cause she is very much invested in.
Patricia's humanitarian role just might be the most challenging she's ever tackled, and in true form, she is 100 percent committed to the task at hand.
