Before becoming an attorney, Patricia held multiple positions in a Louisiana sheriff’s office, the most notable of which was as the first female member of SWAT in the parish. She was selected for the FBI Instructor Development Course which entitled her to teach anything within the state’s police training curriculum.

In 2018, Patricia graduated from Southern University Law Center in Louisiana. While in law school, Patricia gained valuable legal experience through an internship with the public defender’s office and as a law clerk for Louisiana’s First Circuit Court of Appeals. Upon earning her Juris Doctor, Patricia relocated to Ohio where she passed the Ohio Bar Exam and opened a private practice representing clients in the Cleveland area.
