Patricia Paris, an Arizona native, received her BA in Italian from the University of Arizona in 2005. That summer was spent traveling all over Europe, and it was then that she realized she had a passion for learning about different cultures around the world. Through all her travels, however, Tucson & Phoenix always beckoned her back home (well, even Arizona in general, really). She believes that Phoenix & Tucson have a certain magnetism that is unmatched; whether it is the diversity of mountain and desert life, the charming character that both Phoenix & Tucson have, or the exquisite cuisine and exciting entertainment.

Patricia has more than twelve years’ experience in proactive customer service and relationship building. She loves to engage with people, to exchange knowledge on a broad spectrum and is passionate about showcasing her home state. Patricia enjoys spending time with her husband and dogs, reading, photography, travel, watching and debating films and just enjoying the great outdoors!
