She currently was owner and broker of Holden Beach Properties and Rental Services of which she gave 110% of herself to its clients. Holden Beach was special to Pat and wanted it to remain a family oriented home for her family and the members of the community. She was involved in the politics of the Island and served as commissioner from 1999 - 2001 and 2005 - 2007. A republican at heart, she would encourage everyone to participate in the democratic process by voting, and believed in voting for the right person over party. She loved animals, especially cats and could be found taking care of many strays at any given time as well as gardening in her yard.
