The Road Less Traveled – Jessica & Jon Patella

Jessica and Jon Patella share their story as residents and working professionals in Moore County and the exciting journey they embark upon this week as they prepare to live overseas. Jessica has been a frequent & valued guest on our past shows as Moore County’s only Naturopathic physician and as a teacher at Sandhills Community College in the field of Nutrition. Jon came to Pinehurst twice since 2004; most recently as the Carolina Hotel Fine Dining Operations Manager in 2010. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People author Stephen Covey said to “begin with the end in mind”, and that’s just what the Patella’s have done and are doing. The story of their change of life plans, the sale of their Pinehurst home and their impending year abroad is brought to life in an inspirational, principled and loving conversation of commitment, consistency and resolve. Their relationship to conventional wisdom is both intriguing and full of hope and courage.
