Paula is excited and honored to be part of the Usual Suspects. While Paula has never been on stage, she is no stranger to the theater. Her love for theater began in high school where she spent many hours backstage. Paula is currently a Kindergarten Teacher with the Rockford Public Schools and a member of the board for Artist Ensemble in Rockford. In her spare time, she volunteers with set builds, ushering and supporting local theatre in any way that she can. Paula believes that making something amazing from a clean slate is the most wonderful part of this art and being able to share that with others is remarkable.
