After college, Pat briefly went to work for his father, and then at age 23 started his own insurance business. Pat’s love for rural Nebraska kept him in the Schuyler area, bucking the common trend of moving to the big city. Pat saw hope, prosperity, and most of all, happiness in keeping with the small town values that developed him. Today, Pat is an Investment Advisor Representative who works with individuals and organizations regarding their insurance and investment needs.
For the past 13 years, Pat has been a volunteer youth minister with high school teens. This has been one of his most rewarding challenges in his life because of the amount of time involved and the humbling experience of sharing his faith. The Schuyler youth group has been one of the most prolific in the state of Nebraska and has received numerous international, national, and local awards and recognition for its outstanding work.
Pat has not always led an exemplary life. He had some encounters with the law regarding alcohol and marijuana when he was in his twenties. Thankfully, the law won these battles and today these experiences are looked upon as an asset because of the life-change that occurred. With the help of God, a recovery program and the love of friends and family, Pat’s life has changed and he has been able to help effect change in other’s lives because of this experience. Pat is not proud of this part of his past but has taken full responsibility for his actions and understands well the concerns and challenges of many others who are dealing with these issues in their own lives.
