Pat Shoemaker


Pat brings nearly 20 years of experience in direct mail and in the nonprofit arena to HSP Direct. After serving both as a volunteer leader and as the area director for Young Life of Frederick County, an international Christian outreach ministry for teenagers, for 6 years, Pat began his direct marketing career in 2001.

After a very successful tenure at another agency, Pat joined the HSP Direct team in 2008. His direct mail expertise, coupled with his understanding of the fundraising challenges facing nonprofit and faith-based organizations in particular, brings a valuable perspective to HSP’s client projects. An avid outdoorsman, Pat also has a natural passion for Second Amendment advocacy. Pat was promoted to Jr. Partner in January of 2012  and Partner in October 2016.

After earning a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology/Sociology and a Studio Art minor from Towson University, Pat returned to his hometown of Frederick, Md., where lives with his wife, Michelle, and their three daughters, Katie, Mallory and Maggie. They attend Sovereign Grace Church of Frederick, and Pat still serves as Chairman of the Young Life advisory Committee.
