Pat, currently a director in the BC Public Service, has served in a variety of senior management roles throughout her career. Before joining the BC government, Pat spent 16 years managing international development projects at the University of Victoria.
It was through her international work that Pat developed a passion for supporting community-based organizations that truly make a difference in the lives of others. While her family has not personally been touched by mental illness, she has a keen understanding of the important role that Island Community Mental Health plays in supporting recovery.
Pat, who lives in Saanich, spends her downtime working on her old house, puttering in her garden and tending to the needs of her resident “princess”, a rough collie named Sadie.
