My name is Paula Horne. I’m married to my wonderful husband, Tom, for 26 years and we have three beautiful daughters, Emily, Maggie, and Sarah.
I work in the business office at St. Joseph Regional High School and as a realtor assistant at Century 21 Gemini. I sit on the Pines Lake Association Board, manage the IHA Campus Shop, and coach the Team Hope Swim Team.
I have been involved with the Team Hope swim team since 2011 as a parent of 3 volunteers and fell in love with the program, the families, and especially the swimmers. In my spare time, I love to walk, read, cook, socialize, and shop.
I would like to thank Team Hope for being a part of my life and acknowledging me tonight!
