After working in cities across the UK, Patricia is proud to be returning home to Cumbria to use her experience to support the growth and development of the University of Cumbria.


In her spare time, Patricia can pursue her passion for fell walking and cycling in Cumbria.

“I love cycling and fell walking, so I do a lot of that,” she said. “We’re very well placed for access to The Lake District and there are some beautiful walks near where we live.

“We have a holiday cottage in Cumbria, so when I’ve invited friends to stay, everyone without exception says how gorgeous it is here.

“If you came from a city and loved outwards bounds activities, can you imagine doing a degree at the University of Cumbria in Ambleside? How fantastic!

“Cumbria has a way of living that lots of people long for and I’m so thrilled to be back.”
