In her years as a competitive adult figure skater, Paula amassed an enviable competitive record at Adult Nationals and other figure skating competitions in the United States, Canada and around the world. Paula was also a former Chair of the Adult Figure Skating Committee for US Figure Skating, was a member if the ISU Working Group for the ISU Adult International Figure Skating Competitions held in Oberstdorf, Germany, and also served as a member of the Board of the Los Angeles Figure Skating Club for a number of years. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her, and benefited from her boundless energy and dedication toward advancing the adult figure skating movement in the United States and around the globe.
