My Bio Dr. Pat Pernicano is DIrector of Clinical Services at Providence House for Children in Georgetown, Indiana. She has been working on her stories for the past 7 years and has shared them extensively within the mental health community. Her family and friends enjoy her writing, and her now vast collection of puppets match the characters in the stories.

Dr. Pernicano teaches part-time in the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program at Spalding University. She enjoys a life with 2 dogs, 2 cats, her Psychologist and Photographer husband Kevin, her music-writing son Sam, and her college violin-major daughter Becky. She loves singing in The Louisville Chorus, the Harvey Browne Presbyterian choir, and writing music.
