Personal

Paige’s kids have paws.  Her four-year-old quirky farm cat, Nala Bear, has behaviors resembling those of an energetic Australian Shepard.  On the weekends you’re likely to see Paige walking the shores of Calhoun with her cat…yes, on a leash!  Her hobbies include working on a small Etsy business selling travel bags, blogging about local music, and playing volleyball three times a week.  Paige’s interests revolved around recreational activities, traveling, volunteering with Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, and community out-reach programs.  Her family is a huge contributing factor as to why she has found herself working and volunteering in the health and human services field.  Paige’s sister, diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and developmental disabilities, has driven her to provide inclusive opportunities for all individuals living with disadvantages.
