Hi, I'm Patrick
WHERE I COME FROM
Raised in foster care, Patrick Penn overcame the tragedy of abuse and neglect to become a proud family man with a distinguished record of service to our country. Growing up, he learned the importance of faith, family, and hard work.
A THRIVING CAREER

Highly decorated, he received the Meritorious Service Medal and the Combat Action Badge, before retiring at the rank of Captain in 2017.
While serving his country, Patrick graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Criminology and earned his Masters Degree in Applied Information Technology from the George Mason University Volgenau School of Engineering.
Continuing his commitment to our nation, Patrick put his 20 years of service and education to work for Textron Aviation Defense in Wichita as a Program Manager, leading the $14.5m T-6 Trainer upgrade project for the Department of Defense.
