Patricia Resende is the NBC 10 I-Team Digital Reporter. She joined the station in 2015.
Prior to joining NBC 10, Patricia reported for a number of news publications, including The Boston Globe, the Boston Herald, Boston Business Journal and AOL Patch. A native of Rhode Island, Patricia also reported for the Providence Business News and was a research and writing specialist for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) during the Rhode Island Flooding Disaster (DR-1894).
Patricia spends her days researching and investigating by digging through documents and tracking down information to get answers for turnto10.com readers and NBC 10 viewers. In 2011, Patricia uncovered details of a Massachusetts mayor who sabotaged the city's own redevelopment authority by starving the group of funds and sending flawed reports to state and federal agencies as a way to oust the group's director. In 2001, through Freedom of Information Act requests, she broke a story on the forced retirement of a Massachusetts police chief. Among the most memorable stories Patricia covered, are the tragic Station nightclub fire and Edgewater's post-Christmas massacre.
Patricia attended Northeastern University's School of Journalism majoring in print journalism and minoring in politics. When she's not on deadline or spending time with her husband, twin boys and daughter, she's volunteering with a number of organizations including the Rhode Island Walk to End Alzheimer's, Bristol Fourth of July Committee, Bristol/Warren Education Foundation and Best Buddies.
In her free time Patricia enjoys running and white water rafting.
