Patricia Malone
Chief Creative Officer
FreshBlood Group

SAN FRANCISCO, USA // Following a career as a critical care nurse in New York City, Patricia’s love of writing and creativity propelled her into the healthcare agency world. After years in NYC agencies, a move to San Francisco landed her at an agency where she met the two partners with whom she would co-find Stratagem Healthcare Communications, an award-winning creative agency for over 16 years. After serving as Managing Director, Creative for DDB Health San Francisco, Patricia returned to her entrepreneurial roots to take the creative helm at FreshBlood Group.

Today, with 25+ years of experience, Patricia has developed distinctive creative campaigns for both U.S. and global markets, and spent a majority of her career leading creative teams to do the same. She has a passion for mentoring and thrives on being a team player —challenging and being challenged to get to the best possible strategic and creative approach, for the best possible result. Patricia lives with her husband and son in Marin County, California, and is passionate about running, horseback riding and Golden Retrievers.
