As a US Marine during the Persian Gulf War, Pat did whatever it took, like learning new skills in real time and pushing forward in moments of uncertainty. This experience gave him a chance to become a leader and taught him how important planning, persistence, and patience are in achieving a mission.
A worsening health condition got Pat’s attention in 2018. With a few simple lifestyle changes and the help of friends and family, he was able correct the condition and is now healthier than ever. Overcoming this adversity proved to Pat that mindset and habits are critical to being the best version of himself.
