Paula's inspiration for creating Changing Places came to her as she was handling the downsizing of her parents' home with her three sisters. Her background in nursing and geriatric social work has been invaluable in her work with older adults who are overwhelmed and stressed when faced with a move from their home of many years.
Carol has always been the "go to" person in her family, whether it be for organizing, moving, or overall advice. Prior to co-founding Changing Places, she managed small businesses for over twenty years. She brings her strong people skills to working with clients and loves the arena of senior move management.

Bonnie is a real people person and is devoted to helping senior adults as they make
transitions from one stage in their life to another. She proudly takes on and enjoys performing

about their move each time she works with them.
Sheryl is detail oriented and able to juggle many balls at one time. She is diligent and
works tirelessly to make sure the clients are informed and that all expectations are met.
She has a specialty in re-sale and re-distribution of items that are no longer needed
and brings her positive energy to each job.
Maria attributes her unflappable demeanor and strong problem-solving skills to growing up with seven siblings and learning early to think on her feet and get stuff done. Her favorite part of her job is getting to know her clients and helping them through stressful situations.
