Patrick M

Admissions & Community Outreach coordinator



Patrick was born and raised in Boulder, Colorado. In 2012 he earned his degree in International Affairs from the University of Colorado, Boulder and is currently pursuing his Masters in Mindfulness-Based Transpersonal Counseling at Naropa University. Most recently, Patrick worked as a field instructor for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) working in the climbing, mountaineering, and winter programs. Before that, Patrick taught himself to code and worked in several small tech companies in the Boulder area. He loves to take advantage of the great access to the outdoors that we have in Boulder and enjoys climbing, running, and backcountry skiing. At the same time, he enjoys films, reading, sitting in coffee shops, and going to art galleries on First Fridays in Denver. As a mentor, Patrick builds rapport by having fun with his mentees by engaging in shared interests or having conversations and then using that trust to help his mentees reach their goals.
