About the Author
Patricia Altschul plays the resident madcap grande dame on "Southern Charm" Bravos hit reality show. Patricia has earned her status as a preeminent tastemaker. She received her Masters Degree from George Washington University, where she lectured on Art History.

In 2012 Altschul was given the Woman of the Year award by the Police Athletic League of New York City.
In 2013 she received a Carolopolis Award from the Preservation Society of Charleston for her renovation of the historic Isaac Jenkins Mikell House.

In addition to being an academic and a philanthropist, she has done a life-long tour-of-duty at the top of the social ladder in Washington, D.C., Oyster Bay, and on Manhattans storied Fifth Avenue, where she observed--and ultimately dictated--the modern-day rules of civility. Patricia, who really puts the social in social networking, has a glorious brain, the best legs, a killer sense of humor, and expertly curates every aspect of her life.
