His tremendous drive, unwavering work ethic and contagious passion have allowed Patrick to become a leader within our company. He thrives on the impact that AIL insurance has on the families he serves.

Patrick recalls: "I stopped by to see how one of my policy holders was doing and I found out that the gentleman and his wife were in a very serious car crash. The gentleman lost his wife and he was hospitalized for many months. The hospital bills were staggering and left him in a financial bind. The gentleman, who was in his 70s, was heartbroken because he was about to lose the house that he and his late wife had shared together. In researching the gentleman's policy, I found out that he was entitled to $200 a day hospital benefit for the entire time that he was hospitalized. He didn't even know that he had this benefit and he started to cry. This had a huge impact on me and made me realize the impact I had on other peoples’ lives."

Patrick works very hard but enjoys spending his time off with his friends, his family and his dog Brodie.
