CHID, EDAC, IIDA, Lean Green Belt Principal; Practice Leader, Interior Design


As a founding Principal of the firm, Pat has been an integral part of Array’s evolution. She has been at the forefront of advancing the role of interior design beyond the confines of applied color, pattern and texture into a more holistic approach focused on patient safety, empowerment, culture change and improved outcomes. This approach maximizes the potential for an ideal ‘patient-as-guest’ experience.

Pat spends her weekends spinning and dreaming up gourmet meals for family and friends.
