Paula helped grow a 123-year legacy with a mission of helping America’s most vulnerable build hope, resilience and well-being.

Prior to joining VOA, Paula held key leadership roles for two other Minnesota nonprofits, as President and CEO of Dakota Communities (now Living Well Disability Services) and Chief Operating Officer of Courage Center (now part of Allina Health). Before entering the health and human services field she held marketing and retail leadership positions in the department store division of Target Corporation.

Paula has a passion for lifelong learning. She holds a Master’s in Organizational Leadership from St. Catherine University, where she also earned a Certificate in Ethics and Leadership. She completed Stanford’s Executive Education for Nonprofit Leaders program and Mindful Leadership Training from Seton Cove, located in Austin Texas.
