Audra Fordin, Founder.
My name is Audra Fordin and I have the distinct pleasure of owning Great Bear Auto Repair and Auto Body Repair Shop in Flushing, NY. I have been in the automotive industry for the past 27 years (yes that is most of my life) Car repair can be scary for everyone – but it doesn’t have to be anymore!!! I have no doubt I can effectively educate and empower other women about their cars and put the control back in the driver’s hands. Yes, Auto Repair CAN Feel This Good!
