My name is Alexander A. Patton, I am 25 years old, and am originally from Escalante, Utah but currently live in Edmonton, Alberta.
I am a student at Grant MacEwan University where I am currently in the Child and Youth Care program. In 2015, I plan on transferring to the Bachelor of Social Work program.
Tourette Syndrome is something that I became very passionate about. I have many friends with Tourette and currently serve on the National Board of Directors of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada. I also volunteer with the Edmonton Chapter of the Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada and volunteer at a summer camp each year for kids with Tourette.
I currently work as a Leisure Services Supervisor at the Leduc Recreation Centre where I organize and schedule a variety of recreational activities. I also work for the Alberta Adaptabilities Association as a Team Lead with child with special needs.
I am also an avid photographer, love writing, and even dabble in some website design.
My dream is to open a wilderness camp for kids who are considered at-risk or with special needs.
I also want a helicopter. =)
