Instructor Bio

For over 13 years, Patrick has worked with thousands of people from all walks of life dealing with chaos, disconnection, burnout, and stress. That experience has helped him break down the "big picture" of stress into bite-sized steps for action and change.

Patrick began his professional career in law enforcement. He worked a variety of assignments such as patrol, SWAT, recruit training, Crisis Intervention Team, and mental health community awareness training for six and a half years. During this time, he received his Master’s in Forensic Psychology and dedicated his expertise in serving first responders’ mental health, wellness, and resiliency.

He decided in order to best help first responders he would have to leave the badge behind. Patrick transitioned to a civilian role as an Employee Assistance Professional. There he continued to provide first responder assistance in critical incident debriefings, leadership and supervisory training and consultations, city-wide wellness initiatives, law enforcement Peer Support program development, and much more.

Since then he has worked in consulting agencies on building peer support programs, conducted annual wellness conversations, and founded Vital Resilience, a company dedicated to working with high-adversity and first-responder professionals and organizations. He is also “one of the voices” of Mindbase, a proactive first responder peer support technology providing training modules on various wellness topics.

Additionally, he's had parallel careers working with athletes as a CrossFit owner and coach as well as leading teams in the Customer Experience space in SaaS technology. His perspective is pulled from a number of cultures and "walks of life" providing an authenticity and balance for many industries and cultures.

When not wearing a dress shirt, you’ll find Patrick trail running, mountain biking, adventure racing, working on his friend’s farm, and being outside as often as possible.
