The Lucky Leash Team

Patrick grew up in suburban Chicago and studied philosophy and theology at North Park University in Albany Park. 


After working with a few local nonprofits, Patrick decided to pursue a new adventure in canine care while starting graduate scool in Social Work. He works closely with SitStayRead, an organization improving literacy in Chicago public schools with the help of certified support dogs.

When he has moments of free time, you'll find Patrick cheering on the Bulls, hiking through forest preserves, or watching a good documentary.
