Patricia (Pati) is an Engineering Manager with more than 20 years in the industry. She started as a software engineer (back end) after completing a self training program run by her company at the time. After a few years programming on different asset management solutions, she transitioned to project management, then to release management and finally to software engineering management. She now leads two teams in New Relic. She is passionate about software, people and learning and has made a habit of stepping out of her comfort zone.
Fun Fact: She’s returned to her mother land, Spain, after 20 years in Scotland and 5 in Ireland with husband, 2 dogs and one cat. That was a fun trip!
