Marie Paulson is a dedicated business professional with over 20 years’ experience supporting executives of all levels with projects relating to administration, human resources, and event and meeting management. She began her career at the age of 16 supporting a State Farm agent where she learned the nuances of putting in place processes and procedures to better support her managers and the teams she worked with. Marie rapidly grew in her career, working her way up the administrative ladder to her most recent position at Alzheimer’s Orange County (AlzOC). Here, she held the position of Office Manager and Executive Assistant to the CEO. At AlzOC, not only was Marie responsible for the life of her CEO (literally), but she was also in charge of making sure the staff were thriving and happy. Marie was known as the “life of the party” as she enjoyed putting together staff events, trainings, and personal and professional development seminars for the team. She has been praised for her extensive organization skills and keeping projects on track while juggling multiple priorities and deadlines.

After spending her whole life as a Southern Californian, Marie and her husband, Steven, recently made the move to a little lake town in Western Michigan, where they built their first home. When they are not working, you can find Marie and Steven participating in outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, hiking, camping, and taking their dog, Heidi (a Belgian Malinois/Pitbull mix), on long walks through their neighborhood. They both have a heart for those in need and since her husband is an Army veteran, they often find themselves doing what they can to help local veterans, especially supporting their small businesses.
