Patricia was born and grew up in Portland, OR. She attended Concordia University – Portland for undergrad (where she also played varsity golf) then Mt. Hood Community College for Physical Therapy Assistant school. Patricia became interested in rehabilitation medicine after injuring her back and seeing firsthand how impactful physical therapy is in returning people to doing what they love in life. She enjoys teaching others and staying active, so it was the perfect combination of both. When away from the office, Patricia enjoys golfing, playing with her fur-children, binge watching Netflix shows and dancing. Fun fact: Patricia crochets and knits toys for her cats.
