OFFICE MANAGER / SPECIAL EVENTS
Paula grew up in her family restaurant and was folding napkins at the age of five. She was conditioned to love a fast-paced, dynamic environment where a customer never felt hurried or unsettled. It was perfect preparation for her role as office manager and special events coordinator. “Every day is completely different from the other,” Paula says. “I have constant contact with employees and clients. I love the energy and variety of it all.”
Before joining the firm Paula worked for an investment broker for five years. Prior to that she was a senior director with Mary Kay Cosmetics and won their legendary pink car – she was never quite sure how happy her two boys were riding with her.
Paula has a bachelor’s degree in history and politics from Rosemont College, PA. She is active in her community where she served as PTA President, Chairman of Box Scout Troop 303, Chairman of Benet Academy music parents’ organization, and was a twenty-year member of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago.
Paula’s recreation is consistent with her personality and passion. She loves cooking, entertaining, dining, gardening, and reading. Her favorite TV shows are – no surprise here – Top Chef and Project Runway.
