She graduated from Rensselaer High School and briefly attended Purdue University. Pat graduated from Ball State University with a degree in education and earned her Master’s degree in education from Indiana University. She taught in Plymouth, Ellettsville, and at Newby Elementary in Mooresville. In 1982, Pat founded Children’s Park Child Care and operated a daycare in Mooresville and Avon, retiring in 2015.
