Patricia holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts Degree in Philosophy from York University, with course selections that reflect her keen interest in helping others. She is concerned about the welfare of others, especially those who are marginalized and stigmatized.  

Patricia brings a diverse skillset to the New Canadians Centre, having worked in the financial industry, customer service, mental health and education. She enjoys serving the public and genuinely enjoys helping others. She worked as an English as a Second Language Instructor in Costa Rica and an English as a Second Language Assistant in various towns in Québec and  Ontario. This experience has allowed her to work with youth and adults of international and domestic origin, in which she delighted in the cross-cultural exchange.  

Patricia knows firsthand the challenges of integrating into new communities as she has experienced this personally. She also empathizes with marginalized groups when it comes to finding housing and supports, as she has lived experience in this area.  

Patricia loves music, dance, languages and cultures. She picked up a variety of Latin dance styles while in Costa Rica, learned how to ice fish in Québec with her students and enjoyed trying new cuisines with her students in Ottawa. She is excited to be part of the New Canadians Centre team!
