From Chicken Soup for the Woman Golfer's Soul

Who Is Patty Aubery?

As the president of Chicken Soup for the Soul Enterprises and a #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor, Patty Aubery knows what it’s like to juggle work, family and social obligations—along with the responsibility of developing and marketing the more than 80 million Chicken Soup books and licensed goods worldwide.

She knows because she’s been with Jack Canfield’s organization since the early days—before Chicken Soup took the country by storm. Jack was still telling these heartwarming stories then, in his training programs, workshops and keynote presentations, and it was Patty who directed the labor of love that went into compiling and editing the original 101 Chicken Soup stories. Later, she supported the daunting marketing effort and steadfast optimism required to bring it to millions of readers worldwide.

Today, Patty is the mother of two active boys—J. T. and Chandler—exemplifying that special combination of commitment, organization and life balance all working women want to have.

Of her part in the Chicken Soup family, Patty says, “I’m always encouraged, amazed and humbled by the storytellers I meet when working on any Chicken Soup book, but by far the most poignant have been those stories of women in the working world, overcoming incredible odds and—in the face of all challenges—excelling as only women could do.”

Patty is also the coauthor of several other bestselling titles: Chicken Soup for the Christian Soul, Christian Family Soul and Christian Woman’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Expectant Mother’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Sister’s Soul and Chicken Soup for the Surviving Soul.

Together Patty and husband, Jeff, have been committed to golf as a lifetime passion and have traveled the world extensively in pursuit of the game and the industry that surrounds it. They are most proud of Jeff’s tireless work to help bring millions of people to the game of golf by developing programs and products that are accessible and affordable for everyone.

Together with J. T. and Chandler, Patty and Jeff make their home in Santa Barbara, California. Patty can be reached at:
