Paula Olson

Outreach Manager

Growing up in the coastal hills of Southern California has given Paula a deep love and respect for the land, the ocean and animals. She received her B.A. in English, Creative Writing from California State University, Long Beach. Her career has focused on marketing and outreach at tech and media companies, in the insurance industry and most recently with an agricultural trade association. Her outreach work has included creating great experiences for children with newspapers as living textbooks, edible school gardens (If they grow it, they'll eat it!) and now sharing the open space with children of all ages. A SCUBA diver and UCCE Master Gardener, she pretty much cannot get enough of the outdoors. She lives in Laguna Beach with her husband of 25 years and their rescue dog, Reggae.
