Paula Haugerud

"When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable."

Walt Disney

Learner Experience Coordinator

Paula Haugerud is honored to serve as a learning logistics coordinator for the CWTS, where she is responsible for the coordination of training logistics for all Kempe CWTS courses and provides assistance to ultimately further the greater mission of the organization.

Paula grew up in Colorado and studied psychology at the University of Colorado. She began her career with a national nonprofit organization in a variety of administrative and leadership roles serving youth-based program development and events. Later, Paula worked in the public school system in multiple positions—working in classrooms with students, as a volunteer coordinator, and in office management, as well as providing direct vocational and transition services to young adults in the community in partnership with the State of Colorado. Every pathway of her work with stakeholders, volunteers, and youth drives her commitment to succeed. She feels great passion about working with programs that impact and enhance the community and state that she loves.

Paula enjoys nothing more than getting to spend time with her husband and two boys; one lives in Grand Junction and the other is a student at UCD. Paula loves to be outside enjoying all that Colorado has to offer and can usually be found watching the Broncos, the Rockies, or the Buffs (or any sports her boys play)!
