While at Mercy Home, Pat led academic, vocational, and extracurricular functions with a team of 25 co-workers. Pat had previously held roles at Mercy Home as an After School Programs Coordinator starting in 2011, and as a Philanthropic Advisor, supporting donors as they made planned gifts in support of young people in need.
Pat began his career teaching Language Arts at St. Malachy School through the Inner-City Teaching Corps. After his first stint at Mercy Home, Pat directed the Corporate Work Study Program at Christ the King Jesuit College Prep. Pat was credited with helping to build the current Coordinator team, as well as putting in place the Salesforce time clock system.
