Patricia was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta where she began appearing in school and church plays at a young age. After high school, she majored in Economics and Political Science at the University of Alberta, and while still in her studies, became the youngest Account Executive in Canada for a major IT corporation. In spite of her success in business, Patricia still felt a pull toward acting, and after taking a round of evening classes through Edmonton’s Citadel Theatre, she packed up her belongings and left to begin pursuing her dream of acting in Vancouver.
Patricia has appeared in a number of feature films and major network television series, such as Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol starring Tom Cruise, Hallmark’s Harvest Moon, SYFY’s “The Magicians”, TNT’s “Proof”, ABC’s “Motive”, The CW’s “Smallville” and CBC’s “Little Dog”. With her business background, Patricia was a natural fit for producing and is currently in development on her next project with Flower Films; founded by Drew Barrymore. Also, determined to broaden the view of South Asian stories in the North American film industry, Patricia co-founded the annual Vancouver International South Asian Film Festival that launched in 2010.
Patricia is the founder of License To Rise, an online platform where women come to give themselves the permission to rise above any and every violation they have experienced in the past. By anonymously sharing their stories, seeing stories of others, consuming life-giving content, and engaging in the community, it’s a place to be encouraged, uplifted and reminded of their voice.
