Hi! I’m Carolyn Pongracz and I’m one of the administrative assistants for The Kate Broddick Team!
I’ve lived in Brantford since 2004 with my super awesome (and hunky) husband Mike who is a voiceover actor. Since then, we’ve settled down to raise our funny kids Owen and Juliana, and have really gotten to know the area. A lot of people are interested in the crazy well-known things my husband has done in his career, but I have a pretty wild and wacky career history myself!
Originally I graduated from college with a diploma in Early Childhood Education, and I worked at a group home for children & teenagers. But the curiosity-bug got a hold of me and I decided to go back to college to pursue another interest! I graduated from Radio Broadcasting and worked at a number of radio stations in Southwestern Ontario as a copywriter and producer. Not long after, I decided to go back to night school for Applied Photography, and in 2002 I started my own wedding photography business. It wasn’t long before I was busy enough with my company, In Bloom Photography, that I was able to leave my day-job at the radio station and work for myself at home while raising our kids.
Now that our kids are a little older, I’ve jumped into the field of Real Estate and it’s one that I love. I am a huge organizational nerd, so being an administrative assistant in a busy office is actually a lot of fun! And I’m able to take my experience as a photographer and use that to take all of the bright & cheery house photos you see in our marketing. It’s neat to pull these two aspects of my career into one amazing job! I’m proud to be a part of this incredible group of women dedicated to their “family first” approach, and look forward to working with you soon.
