She is a graduate of York University (B.A.) and Trinity College, University of Toronto (MDiv) and was ordained at Yorkminster Park Baptist Church in January 2015.

Paula grew up in Thornhill and her early life was filled with music. From attending the Royal Conservatory of Music (singing) from the age of 6 until early adulthood, to joining the Canadian Children’s Opera Chorus and both Mendelssohn Youth and Mendelssohn Choirs her world sang and she with it. She is an avid reader, researcher and writer in her spare time and mother of two, Philip and Colette, both of whom she considers the greatest of teachers.
