Pat is proud to say 2020 marks her 40th year as a talent agent. After starting as a voiceover agent, Pat soon moved on to a large agency as an on- camera agent.

She earned the title of Vice President of New Business, thanks to her innovative thinking and vision of bringing VO talent live to the public. She proudly produced Talkin’ Toons with Rob Paulsen at the World Famous Improv, which became a very successful venture. Now, as an animation vocieover agent, Pat represents some of the best talent in the world: Kevin Michael Richardson, Fred Tatasciore, Kari Wahlgren, Pamela Adlon, Gregg Berger and many more. Pat lives in Los Angeles with her talented husband, voice actor Bob Joles.
