Patricia is proudly serving her first term on the Board of Trustees serving Wards 6 & 7. Patricia brings a broad perspective to the role of Trustee. She is a former teacher, having taught in Edmonton and Calgary-area public schools. She is also an instructor at the University of Calgary’s Werklund School of Education. Patricia holds a Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) degree and a Masters of Education (Science) degree, both from the University of Alberta. Patricia is also an active community volunteer and CBE parent.
Patricia believes that a strong, inclusive public education system benefits everyone and that all children deserve access to excellent educational programming. Cities and communities are safer, more productive, and resilient when all students receive high-quality education and are wholly supported. Patricia looks forward to working collaboratively with her fellow trustees, parents, citizens of Calgary, and all stakeholders to continue to advance our world-class education system, the Calgary Board of Education.
Originally from Edmonton, Patricia and her husband Paul have lived in Calgary for almost 25 years and raised their three children (and cats) here. She is an avid sports mom, reader, and gardener. In her downtime, Patricia enjoys travelling and being outdoors in our beautiful city or unwinding at the lake.
