Patty Rocklage’s High-Octane Renovation Schedule

Patty Rocklage is a noted philanthropist, psychotherapist, and renovation habitué. Rocklage is married to chemist, Dr. Scott Rocklage, and the couple has been part of the charitable and professional landscape of the Boston area for over 20 years.Patty Rocklage followed an early interest in mental health science during her university years and became a graduate of Psychology from the University of Southern California in 1981. She currently works as a licensed psychotherapist, treating both families and individuals.

Mrs. Rocklage and her husband snagged the charitable spotlight in July of 2016 when they subsidized the renovation of crucial MIT nanochemistry research spaces. Mr. Rocklage completed his PhD studies within the department under Nobel Prize winner, Richard R. Schrock. He has long praised the school for providing him with the foundation for his own successful career. Though they might not have known it at the time, more structural renovations were on the horizon for a successful couple. Dissatisfied with portions of their historic home, the Rocklages sought out contractors for a kitchen renovation.

However, upon selecting and meeting with Ed Freedlender of Sunbury Companies, the couple did an about-face when realizing the true source of their dissatisfaction stemmed from the logistics of the home’s front face and the fact that the facade was not conducive to hosting guests. Freedlander subsequently designed and implemented a recycled rock landscaping design in accordance with environmental preservation practices of the area. A more welcoming front façade was then constructed, facilitating a flipped front foyer with various walkways. Stopping briefly for the Rocklages to enjoy the Christmas holidays, renovation was relatively quick and painless. The couple now enjoys hosting guests within their four-season front space and revised entryways.
