Paula Peterson

Paula joined the Advisory Board of Bread & Broth in 2015.  A very involved South Tahoe resident, she started what is now called B&B 4 Kids in 2011 by serving five students at the local middle school, and is excited to have seen the program grow under Bread & Broth beginning in 2015.  “The volunteers with Bread & Broth are amazing,” said Paula.  “Their dedication and determination to bring the program to more children and families is inspiring.”

She is the Editor and Operations Manager for South Tahoe Now, an online news publication and provides internet marketing to several businesses.  A long-time advocate of volunteerism, Paula also serves as on the Tahoe Youth and Family Services Board of Directors as their Vice-President, on the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Board as their Secretary, and on the Drug Free Coalition of South Lake Tahoe.   She is also Past-President of Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club and South Tahoe High School Booster Club.    After the success of the B&B 4 Kids program, Paula helped start a homeless student resource room at South Tahoe High where teens can go for clothing, food, supplies and resources from the McKinney-Vento advocate.

Paula graduated with a degree in Journalism from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and will be  a forever student by enjoying classes at the local junior college.  Paula is the proud mother of three sons and a daughter who have either graduated from or are currently enrolled in college.   In her spare time she enjoys gardening, crafting, shabby-chic  touch repurposing, fantasy football, sewing and reading.
