Paula was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. She visited Kauai for the first time in 1982 and immediately fell in love with the island. She was able to move to Kauai in 1988 and it has been her home ever since. Having lived on Kauai for the past 31 years, Paula knows calm from the inside out and continues to be in awe of the beauty and aloha that abound on this magical island. Following Hurricane Iniki, Paula worked as a home inspector for a State of Hawaii insurance company, HPIA. After two years and over a thousand home inspections, her knowledge of the island and its communities grew. This familiarity and her desire to help others find their dream homes is what fuels her passion for real estate . Paula is a member of the Nawiliwili Yacht Club and serves as board member and Director of Membership for the club. She has been a member of the Rotary Club of Kapaa and chaired their major fund raising event, Taste of Hawaii, for nine years. She is also a member of the Child & Family Services Guild. Paula has a sincere interest in the welfare of Kauai and it’s people. She lives with her husband in Wailua Homesteads. They enjoy golf, sailing, travel and spending time with their six children and seven grandchildren.
