We are pleased to announce the newest addition to the team at Howell, Buchan & Strong, Natalie Patel, who will assist with the operations of the Firm, including supervising all non-attorney personnel, managing the Firm’s operating and information systems, over seeing finance functions, and assisting with the marketing of the Firm’s legal services.
A native of Germantown, Maryland, Natalie grew up in a community just outside of the Washington, D.C. metro area. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in May of 2016 from Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Mrs. Patel was a member of Psi Chi Honor Society as well.
“When I interviewed her last month and checked out her work references what immediately stands out is that she is highly organized, efficient, but also professional and courteous—two qualities in short supply these days. When a position came open in our office I couldn’t wait to interview Natalie!” stated Jeff Howell, Senior Managing Partner of Howell, Buchan & Strong.
Natalie’s background includes work in the corporate world including a company that manufactures and sells medical equipment for use in research. She also served for four years at the corporate level involved with project administration, including collaborating with external IT specialists to resolve onsite IT issues.
She will reside in Tallahassee with her husband Tapan, who begins his Doctoral work at the Florida State University, Department of Psychology this Fall.
