Paula joined Family Promise in 2014 after working for years in marketing and communications in the sports industry, which eventually led to a position overseeing database implementations for a leading provider of nonprofit software services. Volunteering locally not only confirmed her feeling that community response is the quickest way to affect change, but that she needed to choose a different career path.
“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more,” – a quote which inspired Paula to make that change.
Today she works with the Family Promise Regional Directors and Affiliates coordinating and overseeing Affiliate projects. “Family Promise Affiliates are community – and now I can affect more people in more communities. I’m now doing what I was meant to do. Thanks H. Jackson Brown!”
