About me

I'm a Polymath; I draw on diverse experiences and knowledge to solve specific and complex problems.

Depending on the day I can be found creating a brand identity for a startup, developing a go-to-market strategy for a new product, designing the user experience for an e-commerce app, or even coaching talented creative entrepreneurs.

An integrated approach is my superpower; empowering me to facilitate multi-disciplinary collaboration and transform ambitious ideas into practical realities.

I'm incredibly proud to have spent the last decade working with bright minds, inspiring teams and influential brands across the globe - from the Canada to Australia to China.

I'm the founder of Zealous and am available for freelance projects, strategic consulting and speaking engagements.

I particularly enjoy supporting those passionate about making our communities, businesses, and daily experiences more meaningful.

“Patricia possesses a unique ability to absorb knowledge quickly and execute it flawlessly.

Ken McGarrie, General Manager at Prime & Provisions

“...she's an undiluted power pack of creative awesome.
