Patricia Egan was the youngest of four children who grew up in New Brunswick, New Jersey. She had three older brothers, so sports were always around her.

She started as a waitress at St. Peter’s Medical Center’s coffee shop when she was 11 and worked her way up. “I really enjoy helping other people. I loved taking care of patients and talking to them and their families,” she told The Athletic. “I was born to be a nurse.”

Craig Biggio walked into the student pub on campus where she worked as a bartender when she was a junior. Some of her friends were dating his teammates, and even though it wasn’t love at first sight, Patty knew there was something there, as per The Athletic.
Patty’s focus didn’t change much when she started dating a college athlete. She didn’t give up on nursing, even though she was in a new relationship, had a lot of classes, and worked three nights a week at the hospital.
