Pat grew up in Pottsville, Pennsylvania and followed her big sister to the University of Delaware, where she majored in Business Administration and first heard about Unitarian Universalism over a pitcher at the Deer Park. After graduation, she went to work as a computer programmer, and lived in various locations from Dallas, TX; to Philadelphia, PA; to Claymont, DE; to Northern Virginia, where she finally sampled a few congregations and found a spiritual home at Bull Run Unitarian Universalists in Manassas.

In 2010, while living in Centreville, VA, she began a Master of Arts in Social Change at Starr King School for the Ministry in Berkeley, CA. In 2012, she packed up her house in Centreville, VA, loaded cats and cookpots into an RV she bought on Craigslist, drove to Berkeley and lived in that RV for 3 years while completing the MASC program.

In 2023, she moved from Centreville, VA, to Wilmington, DE, and is happy to be home and to have found First Unitarian Church of Wilmington! Her cats have other opinions.
