Patrick shares a fundamental belief that investing in our youth is a smart and strategic way to ensure stronger communities in the future.  In 2008, Patrick retired from a long career in public education that included Vice-President, Student Services at Malaspina University-College (VIU) and Assistant Superintendent in School District 68.
