From Farm to Runway! Patricia Neville established herself in the modeling and media industry with her natural beauty, high energy, business acumen and enthusiasm at the age of 50! Much more than “just a pretty face,” Patricia’s strong communication skills, warmth and confident demeanor enabled her success in previous diverse careers including Farmer, National Sales Manager, and Director of Development for a Homeless & Domestic Violence shelter. Patricia pursued her dream to professionally model by entering the “2007 More Magazine/Wilhelmina Model Agency 40+ Model Search.” Out of 17,000 applicants, Patricia, then 50, won the contest and was given a 3-year contract with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency in New York. Her contract renewed, Patricia continues to work in this field. In 2008 she was signed by another top New York agency, Don Buchwald and Associates, for commercial broadcast media. Recent modeling contracts have taken her to many parts of the world including Turkey, Italy, Greece, the Galapagos Islands, Czech Republic and many other exotic locations. Patricia has appeared in many national and regional print campaigns, as well as on “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Rachael Ray,” “Extra,” and “Lipstick Jungle” produced by ABC. When asked the question, Are you ever too old to follow your dream? Patricia’s reply, Never! This is a unique opportunity for growth and expansion to be experienced with the skill, knowledge and wisdom that comes with aging. Have the courage to grow into the person who has the confidence to reinvent, accept and inspire oneself! This is a Celebratory time. Go out and live your dream, this alone inspires others to live theirs! Patricia is available for motivational speaking, personal consultations, presentations, trade shows, sales meetings, training seminars and videos.
