Mary Pat graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2008 with her Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing and Graphic Design.

She went on to work as a Jesuit Volunteer for San Diego Youth Services at a homeless shelter for teens. She then became a Salesian Lay Missioner for one year in Cochabamba, Bolivia and another year in central India working with young students.

After her volunteer endeavors and post-graduate education, Mary Pat was employed by a small expanding media and marketing firm in Washington, DC.

Mary Pat’s experience working with urban at-risk youth, abused children and impoverished rural villagers has transformed her life in a way she never imagined possible. Grateful for her domestic and international service opportunities, her ultimate goal is to give back by merging her entrepreneurial business sense with her advertising, graphic design and photography skills.
