Thanks to Steve's parent's "gentle" prodding, Patty and Steve started dancing in 1990, and have been dancing up a storm ever since. During their first square dance lessons, their teacher invited Patty to sing with him a couple of times, but she never gave calling a second thought until winter of 1994, when Chris Pinkham, a dancer/caller friend, told her that she was joining him in the spring in the duets hall at the New England Square and Round Dance Convention. A couple of months of frantic practicing, and one convention later, she was hooked!  She had finally found a way to use her music major from Plymouth State College (NH).

After attending callers school in 1995 and 1996, Patty started on her calling path and hasn't looked back since. Dubbed "New Hampshire's Songbird" by dancers in New England, she is known for her singing and sense of humor.  She calls from square dance party nights to the Plus program for square dance clubs and private groups. She has taught square dancing for clubs since 1996, and enjoys teaching new dancers and workshopping with seasoned ones.

Patty has called at the North Carolina Square Dance Convention, the New England Square and Round Dance Convention, at many National Square and Round Dance Conventions, at the Canadian National Square and Round Dance Convention, and has been on staff for several local square dance weekends.  She currently records on Royal Records.

Patty has been a panelist at the national convention, and was a NECCA-approved education specialist, speaking on the role of computers in square dancing, which she has presented to caller and dancer organizations throughout New England.  She served in various leadership roles in local, regional, and national organizations since 1996.  She is a member and of the North Carolina Callers Association, and member and Vice Chairman of the Metrolina Caller and Cuers Association, and is currently serving on the Board of Governors for CALLERLAB.

In 2005, Patty and Steve relocated to Monroe, NC with Kit Kat the adolescent feline.  She is the owner of PKG DesignWorks, and works as a web programmer by day.
