Experience and Education
Ms. Amiel began her career as an Account Manager for Saatchi & Saatchi advertising, where she managed a $30MM budget. She worked in Account Management at several NYC agencies for 10 years.  Ilene spent the next part of her career as a Comptroller where she oversaw all financial and administrative functions.

The History
The story of PAA is truly a personal story of Ilene Amiel.  She was appointed the Executor of her father's estate when he was diagnosed with Stage IV pancreatic cancer and died soon after.   She founded PAA  after she went through the Executor process again for her aunt,  who also passed away quickly after being diagnosed with cancer.  Going through the experience of losing two close family members opened Ilene's heart to the pain of others who might not be equipped to manage Executor/Administrator duties.  She now dedicates her time and talents to making a difference in the lives of others during difficult times.

Ms. Amiel is a native New Yorker and has lived in Westchester county for over 25 years. She is the mother of  two millennials.

Ilene is a proud ally to the LGBTQ* community.
