Pat worked as a telephone operator while in Socorro, and later as a "fashion consultant" with the Wildflower Dress Shop in Ridgecrest. She finished her working career at the NWC Federal Credit Union, where she advanced from the receptionist to Special Assistant to the Manager over a 15 year span. Pat was a good trainer, and taught several new tellers and loan officers how to do their job.

She especially enjoyed the Beta Sigma Phi holiday fashion shows, where she did both modeling and narrating.
