Patsy arrived on the UVM campus long ago for her undergraduate degree in Physical Education. She taught and coached at Champlain Valley Union in Hinesburg for many years and then took time off to raise her two children. When the children started school, she returned to teaching and coached for many years in their recreational leagues. An opportunity to return to UVM in the Physical Education Department opened up in 1997 and she has been here since. Patsy enjoys spending time with the family, hiking, biking, walking, jogging, and most anything active.
