Patti Peterson
Patti Peterson was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey. She attended twelve years of Catholic instruction and graduated Holy Spirit High School in 1972. She left home and set out on her own shortly thereafter. She then attended the school of hard knocks.

She settled down in the beautiful State of Virginia and bought her first horse, which by the way she had always wanted since very early childhood but could never have because she lived in the city.

Patti worked at Ball Metal in Williamsburg, 12 hours a day with alternating day & night shifts monthly, to pursue her dream to own a farm and raise, train and ride horses. She retired after 40 years and has accomplished that dream.

Patti is not afraid of hard work. She is determined and thorough and has a positive work ethic. She is a worker bee – tell her what is to be done, turn her loose and watch it happen.

Patti is the owner of FemSole Farm 🐎  located in Barhamsville, Virginia.

Her last professional legal work was with David Whaley in Richmond where she completed eight years of employment before retiring in April 2018.

Terri is a ferocious researcher. Her skills were especially noteworthy during “No Combat Range in NK” community-wide activities.
