Began his automotive career pumping gasoline with Standard Oil Company of California in 1970. Taking company offered courses on customer service and employee relations, and through hard work, Patrick became an Assistant Manager and after several years became a Station Manager. With a thorough knowledge of customer service and with great dedication to Chevron, Patrick became discouraged with Chevron when the company he had put his heart and soul into refused to promote from within for Retail Manager positions. In 1980 when he was managing a full serve/ self serve station complete with auto repair, along with two additional self/serve stations, Patrick decided to leave Chevron, USA to accept an offer to manage an independent Chevron service station in Palo Alto, California.
It was at Page Mill Chevron that Patrick began to increase his knowledge of the automobile and its theory of operation. Fine tuning his mechanical skills along with his customer service and employee relations knowledge gave him an advantage few people in the industry possess.
In 1986 Chevron did not negotiate the property lease and the station was closed and torn down. Patrick went to work for an independent Shell dealer and spent the next three years building a business for another employer. Seeing no opportunity for advancement or utilization of acquired skills, Patrick bought a shop in Sunnyvale, California and built the business for a year and a half before selling and moving to Elk Grove, California where he opened Elk Grove Auto Clinic in October 1990.
