Hi, I’m Paula. Optimistic Realist and Extroverted Introvert. I have a serious passion for learning and development and live for “light bulb” moments where I am helping and coaching others to Cultivate Insight and Influence Change on both a personal and professional level. Though I currently work exclusively in Learning and Development, I’ve spent the majority of my career as a Human Resources Manager, hold my M.A. in Organizational Leadership, PHR and SHRM-CP certifications, and am a certified trainer for both InsideOut Coaching™, Myers Briggs Type Indicator™ (MBTI), and Franklin Covey’s The 6 Critical Practices of Leading a Team™.
In June 2019 I had the privilege of studying with Dr. Brené Brown to become a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator. Empirically-based, the Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing courage-building skills – Rumbling with Vulnerability, Living into our Values, Braving Trust, and Learning to Rise – through workshops, training and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
I enjoy a good martini, being a kitty-mama to Vivian and Josephine, and have set my intention to be braver with my life – the days engineering smallness are over.
