“Enjoy each day. Don’t postpone joy.”
Paula graduated from Northwestern College in Orange City, IA, with a degree in accounting and business administration before starting her career in public accounting in 1994. After 27 years in the industry, Paula retired from public accounting and joined the First National Wealth Management team.
Paula is a member of the SD CPA Society and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. She came to First National because she admires the Bank’s emphasis on family and community involvement.
“I’m looking forward to working for our clients as a trusted advisor and helping them plan for their financial future.”
Paula is a native of Parker, SD, where she grew up on her family’s farm. Paula and her husband, Shane, have three children: Isaac, Becca, and Elizabeth.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family, walking, hiking, bicycling, kayaking, and reading. Paula’s volunteering efforts include activities with her church, Rake the Town, and Feeding South Dakota.
