Patricia received her JD Degree from Dalhousie University Law School (now called the Schulich School of Law) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and practiced law before entering the not-for-profit sector. She served as the Director of Practice & Education at an international retreat center in Limoges, France; the Executive Director of a large residential meditation retreat center in Nova Scotia, Canada; and as Executive Director of a community development nonprofit in Halifax. She is a certified mediator, restorative justice facilitator, and inter-denominational chaplain. She guides organizations interested in developing a corporate culture that applies mindfulness-related practices to areas such as meeting structures, work habits, conflict resolution, and visioning. She also consults with nonprofit executives on organizational transitions, management, conflict resolution, and the structure, function and policy work of nonprofit boards, and advises ADR professionals in how to support their practice with mindfulness techniques.
Patricia teaches mindfulness to beginners, counsels individuals with on-going meditation practices, and leads mindfulness workshops for lawyers and other professionals. She also conducts mindfulness-related cognitive strengthening circles at hospitals and assisted living facilities, offering social connectivity and support, story telling and poetry, and mindfulness practices to people experiencing immediate or declining health and mobility and/or early stages of dementia.
