Paule grew up in South Africa. Coming to Canada at the age of 12 was a big culture shock to her system and the first time she experienced snow. Her family settled in Ontario, however after completing her undergraduate degree in journalism at the University of Western Ontario, Paule moved to British Columbia and never looked back. Paule received her law degree from the University of British Columbia and was called to the Bar of British Columbia in 2004. After articling and practicing in a downtown Vancouver firm, Paule moved to Kelowna to start a family and get a dog.
A number of years later, now the proud “mom” of two dogs, two cats, two guinea pig and two sons, Paule is happily settled in the Okanagan with her large and rather unruly family. Since leaving Vancouver, Paule has worked in the banking industry and has run her own law practice, focusing on family law, wills and estates, and corporate law. When not working (which is never) she enjoys spending time with her boys, dinners with friends and walks with her dogs.
