Paula comes to Trekkers with 25 years of experience in non-profit fundraising, administration and leadership. She holds an M.S. Ed. from Bank Street College of Education, as well as degrees from Charter Oak State College and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Most recently Paula was Director of Development for P.A.W.S. Animal Adoption Center in Camden. Prior to that she worked in development and admissions at an independent school in New Haven, Connecticut.

Says Paula, “I enjoy working with good people who are dedicated to a worthy cause and I’ve more than found that in the Trekkers staff and Board of Trustees.” After 25 years “away”, Paula and her husband, Bill, recently returned to Maine to continue living the good life with family and long-time friends.
“Paula brings years of experience in development and education and has a passion for the outdoors”, said Executive Director, Amie Hutchison. “It makes her the perfect fit for Trekkers and we are thrilled she is part of the team.”
