Adolescent Program Manager
Prior to becoming our Adolescent Program Manager, Patricia held a variety of roles at Trails, including field staff, field supervisor, and health and wellness coordinator.
After graduation from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a BS in Environmental Science, Patricia hiked the Appalachian Trail. When she finished her hike, she knew that she belonged in the mountains. Shortly afterward, she began working as a field staff at Trails and discovered her passion for wilderness therapy after experiencing how incredible and empowering wilderness could be for students. Patricia has served as a committee member for the Wilderness Therapy Symposium.
Patricia finds it extremely meaningful and rewarding to see students grow and change throughout the program.
In her free time, Patricia loves to rock climb and hang out with her Great Pyrenees puppy named Dupont.
