After graduating from Concordia University in Biology, she co-wrote and produced her first feature Graveyard Alive – A Zombie Nurse in Love. Since its premiere, the film has screened extensively in festivals, garnering numerous awards.

After working several years as a scientist, she opted for a career change and returned to Montreal to form Head on the Door Productions, a company dedicated to creating innovative films in the horror and fantasy genre.
Since then, Patricia has produced her second feature Go in the Wilderness and the festival favorite short Never Tear Us Apart. She is currently producing several projects, including the shorts Les Élus, scheduled to hit the festival circuit in 2017, and Maiden Mother Crone, lensed in winter 2017.
Patricia is currently creating a vampire television series titled Sweet Blood, which was selected for the 2017 Torino SeriesLab, and pitched at the Series Mania Co-Production Forum in Paris. Her horror-comedy feature SLAXXX was selected to pitch at the 2017 Frontières Co-Production Market.
Patricia also works as an assistant accountant in the film industry. Her recent credits include Love Locks, Mother!, and Xmen: Dark Phoenix.
