Her fascination with aviation began as a teenager when she developed an interest in aeronautical engineering. After attending Lone Star College-North Harris, Patricia started her professional career in air charter.

In that role, she worked directly with new hires and flight crew members, planning charter operations for NFL, MLB, NCAA, and other high profile sports clients. She also served in an operations leadership role with Continental’s various independently owned regional airlines, such as Continental Express and Express Jet, until the company merged with United Airlines in 2010.
