New GLA Members Spotlight: Meet David and Isabel Kubikian
How did you learn about GLA?
When we moved down to Loudonville (from Saratoga) we started to get the GLA newsletter and thoughtit would be a great association to join. We love Loudonville.
What motivated you to become a member of GLA?
Many of our acquaintances are members and looking at some of the pictures from the annual events and holiday parties (remember parties?).
What do you hope to gain from your participation in the GLA?
We want to be a part of keeping our community unique. We don't believe there is any other neighborhood with quite the history or feel like Loudonville.
Do you have any special skills you could offer to support our group?
We both have engines that run non-stop. We are "go-getters" and when we join something, we don't do it accidently or with the intention of sitting back and watching everyone else work.
Tell us a little bit about you, your family, your work and what you like to do in your free time.
Isabel and I met in Manhattan 10 years ago when we were both living and working in NYC. I am from Long Island with strong Lake George roots and Isabel is from Loudonville so when we met at a fundraiser and I got the guts to talk to her, she mentioned she was from Albany and I went nuts. My life goal was to move Upstate and be closer to Lake George. I remember she told me I was the only one to ever get excited to hear she was from Albany. We are both Armenian and there is a small but strong Armenian community in the Capital Region. We enjoy giving our time to help raise money for different programs that help serve that community. We have two wonderful kids (Jacqueline, 7 and Arthur "Alex" 1 1/2).We enjoy spending time in Lake George, playing tennis, golf, etc. In terms of work, I am a partner at Herzog Law Firm and I specialize in Estate Planning and Elder Law. It is a wonderful and rewarding type of law which not only allows me to help families through happy and sad times but also allows me to be incredibly thankful for my family, friends and health. It is an area of law that particularly makes you realize how important the little things in life are.
