The younger daughter of William T. Jenkins, a USAF pilot and captain who distinguished himself in the Vietnam War by earning a Silver Star, and his wife Emily Roth. Patty has an older sister, Elaine.

Until the first year of high school, Patty lived in Lawrence, Kansas, and later enrolled at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, from which she received her undergraduate degree. After that, she continued her film studies at the American Film Institute, from which she obtained a master’s degree in directing in 2000. During her studies, Patty became interested in the works of one of the most famed Spanish directors, Pedro Almodóvar, and in 2001 created a short film “Velocity”, influenced by Pedro’s accident-prone housewives, while also focusing on her passion – superheroes.

Patty’s feature debut was the thriller drama “Monster” in 2003, which she also wrote; the film is based on the serial killer Aileen Wuornos, who murdered seven men in Florida in one year. The film earned her praise and several awards, including the Independent Spirit Award in the category Best First Feature. The film put her on the scene, and she became a highly sought-after director, but after a few projects that fell apart, Patty became more focused on television. She has directed episodes of such TV series as “Arrested Development” in 2004, then “Entourage” in 2006, while in 2011 she was given the director’s chair for the pilot of the TV crime drama series “The Killing”, for which Patty won the DGA Award in the category Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Dramatic Series. Her net worth was rising steadily.

As early as 2015, Patty’s name came to notice with Warner Bros/DC Universe for the film “Wonder Woman”; written by Allan Heinberg, with the addition of Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs, Patty was given the director’s chair, while Gal Gadot was chosen for the lead part. The film came out in 2017 and became an immense hit, both critically and commercially, earning Patty a considerable rise in her net worth. The film became the highest grossing film directed by a female director, surpassing “Mamma Mia!”, directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Thanks to this success, Patty was chosen as the director of the second part, which will be released in 2019.

Most recently, she started working on the TV mini-series “One Day She’ll Darken”, written by her husband Sam Sheridan.

Regarding her personal life, Patty has been married to Sam Sheridan, an ex- firefighter and author of the book “A Fighter’s Heart”, since 2007. The couple has a child together. Patty lives in Santa Monica, California with her family.

1[on Kodak's new Super 8 camera] People like to think that digital mediums can do anything film can do, nowadays, but that simply isn't true. Digital is great for certain things, but it is still different. There are plenty of looks, feelings and qualities that only film can do, and you simply cannot capture digitally. [2016]
2I really understand visuals in a way that I didn't before, which is by no means to say I'm a master at all. It's only to say that by getting to try out a bunch of different styles, and different lenses, my understanding has become more fluid.
3[re work of directors Kazan, Kubrick, Scorsese] Those guys are great at the tension of the unknown. You don't know where the story is going, and you're not made to feel comfortable or safe.
4I was into photography and music probably more than anything. I still think probably music is my real love. I think that it's listening to music that made me want to be a filmmaker. When I was in film school, the second I sat down at a Steenbeck with film that I had just shot and put in music to it, that was it. Instantaneously, I couldn't get enough of it, and it had nothing to do with career or want or desire. I liked to sit there and do that twenty-four hours a day. I was like, 'I can't stop doing this. This is it.'
