Pat has an incredibly diverse background, from engineer and designer to pastor and professor. Her professional and life experiences have provided her with a broad range of skills. Pat graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor of Environmental Design and a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering. Pat has always loved numbers. Her foundation in engineering prepared her well for project management. As a Senior Designer for a world-renown lighting consulting firm and as the owner of her own consulting firm, she worked on multi-million dollar projects around the globe, verifying through the process that the designs met all the client’s budget constraints. Running her own firm gave her hands-on experience in all financial aspects of business, from operations costs and budgeting to tax filings to payroll complexities.
