Originally born in Norfolk, Patrick moved several times before his father’s career in the U.S. Navy brought their family back to the area. After graduating from Virginia Tech, Patrick worked as a scribe for CHKD’s sports medicine and orthopedics, which fostered an appreciation for that pediatric specialty.

After attending Eastern Virginia Medical School, Patrick was thrilled to return to CHKD as a physician assistant. He enjoys working with kids and helping them to heal and live full lives.

When he’s not at work, Patrick enjoys exploring the outdoors, playing golf, and traveling with his family.
