Patty Emry  “Little Dynamo”
​Inspirational Speaker and Mentor

After life-threatening surgeries and
medical treatments Patty continued to cultivate a robust and outrageous approach

to life. She had to hide behind athletics, art, family, a sense of humour and self leadership to navigate through life because of the stigmas of her handicaps. Working as a Physical Education teacher, art  teacher, coach, and parent of three, her handicaps were a formidable challenge.

Come Join Patty Emry

Her Book
“It Takes A Sense Of Humour”
A twinless twin’s journey of loss, love, and triumph over hidden handicaps.
