My name is Audrey Pabian, and I am the office manager at Konowitz & Greenberg. It’s an absolute thrill working here. I enjoy the clients that are walking through the door, the cases that are being handled, and the stories that accompany them. The entire office has been so welcoming and patient. I actually need the patience, as this is a new type of job for me. To explain, many years ago I graduated Boston University with a Bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology, and then two years later with a Master’s degree in Special Needs Education. My combined expertise led me to a fabulous job at a school for children who had severe language impairments. After working there for quite a while, I dedicated myself to being a full time mother to three wonderful (now adult) children.
The time came to go back to working “outside of the house.” I decided I wanted to work with young children, so I worked at a pre-school for a few years. I then had an opportunity to join a very small company that, in conjunction with recreation departments, provided art classes for pre-school age children. After a year of working there, I offered to buy the company, which I ultimately did. I bought a company that had relationships with ten towns and ended up working with over sixty towns across Massachusetts. I also had fifteen teachers working for me.
My job entailed planning, implementing, marketing and accounting. This was great fun, but I felt that after doing this for about twelve years, a change was due. I closed my company and started looking for something new to do. Something different. Something challenging. And here I am at Konowitz & Greenberg. I enjoy the TEAM approach, where everyone is available to and supportive of each other. We are each others’ advocates, as we are yours. It’s like a family, and I think that our clients sense and appreciate that.
I look forward to meeting all of you. If I can be of any assistance, please call.
