"I love interacting with the Coaches and Athletic Directors.   It's all about developing relationships.   There are many of our customers who I have never met in-person but I have talked to them so many times that I consider them a friend.   From our vendors, to my co-workers, to our's the people that make this a very special place!"


Patty is a Carmel, Indiana native where she began playing tennis in middle school.   She attended IUPUI and lived in 4 different states before settling back in Indiana.  Patty has held many positions and worn many "hats" since joining IRC Team Sports in 2010.  She is outstanding as a sales rep and her customer service is second-to-none.  She has established many loyal customers who come to her season-after-season.   In her spare time Patty likes to ride bikes, swim, yoga, read, play bingo, and watch movies.   One of her most memorable moments was seeing Mother Teresa several years ago.
