Pat began his career in emergency medicine as an EMT for the city of Missoula fire department in Montana in the early 1990s. In 2003, he attended the  interservice physician assistant program (IPAP) where he graduated with honors. He transitioned to the active army as a PA with a WMD response unit focusing on toxicology and emergency medicine. He worked in various emergency departments during this time and was introduced to ultrasound in 2005 by his emergency medicine mentors at Saint Peters hospital in Helena Montana. He has worked at multiple critical access hospital emergency departments in Montana and Alaska. He is board-certified in emergency medicine and has completed his doctorate of medical science with an emphasis in emergency medicine in 2019 from Lincoln Memorial University. He continues to be fascinated by the utility of ultrasound in acute care medicine. Pat found Maverick medical education to be the perfect opportunity to learn how to benefit patients with significant acute pain. Ultimately, he became faculty for Maverick medical education.


Pat retired from the army in 2021 and continues to work in multiple emergency departments in Montana and Alaska.  He recently received his license as a fishing guide in Montana, and will be working this summer on the Missouri river, sharing his love for fishing with others.
