Effective January 2003, Pat assumed 100% ownership of Professional Alternatives of Georgia as President and COO.

In addition to overseeing the business management of Professional Alternatives, Pat also runs the day-to-day operations of Accounting Options.

Pat also currently serves on the Board of the Georgia Association of Personnel Services in the capacity of Secretary.
