Patricia was born in South Africa and immigrated to New Zealand with her family during her teenage years. During medical school, she completed an elective in Portland, Oregon. She thoroughly enjoyed the experience and chose to return for post graduate training. Her professional interests are wide ranging from critical to palliative care. In her spare time Patricia enjoys running, hiking, cooking and traveling. She caught the "travel bug" from trips to Europe, Asia and Australasia. South America is next on her list.
