office manager


A warm and friendly face and voice, Patricia, as first point of contact in the SQCA/TPR office demonstrates first-class customer service to our clients. Patricia joined our team in March 2018 after two years managing the community fleet for a not-for-profit organisation. She adapted quickly to the creative industry sector and her organisational and administrative skills as Office Manager are highly valued by our whole team.

Patricia has pursued diverse interests and spent a number of years working in Japan, USA and in Canberra working in teaching, tourism and administrative fields. It is Patricia’s particular interest in interior decoration and design that led her to find work with SQCA/TPR. Her wide-ranging experience and exceptional administration skills together with her interest in people and places have contributed to her enthusiasm and confidence in her work.


Patricia is creative, making greeting cards, scrapbook layouts and handmade gifts for family. She also enjoys colouring-in. Patricia’s favourite illustrator and ink evangelist is Johanna Basford and bringing Johanna’s work to ‘life’ by adding one or more colours is a challenging but very rewarding experience.

Patricia has volunteered at the Migrant Resource Centre in Canberra, Communities@Work, National Multicultural Festival, National Capital Authority and at a museum in San Francisco.  Her love of new experiences and meeting new people continues to contribute to Patricia’s personal growth.
