He is an experienced speech-language pathologist with an extensive background in helping people communicate better. His master’s degree in speech science from UBC has provided him with comprehensive training in speech analysis and a solid understanding of sound production. Patrick is certified with Speech-Language Audiology Canada and the College of Speech and Hearing Professionals of BC. He has served a diverse clientele in both public health and private practice.
