A self-identified “Mom to three Millennials,” “introvert in a leadership role” (who tirelessly works to embrace the quieter voices), and dyslexic who learned to embrace her neurodiversity, Pat’s empathy, authenticity, insights, and talent for storytelling make her a standout speaker. Whether she’s talking hard numbers and analytics or sharing her own personal journey, Pat’s talks challenge the mind and touch the heart, while providing actionable expertise on every aspect of HR, leadership, and personal and professional development.
