We are wrapping up our Feature Friday today by highlighting Paula Shephard. Paula celebrated seventeen years with Caton Hosey Insurance this past March. She is an essential part of our team helping us to provide the best customer service to our clients.
She was born and raised in a tiny country town in the Berkshires in Massachusetts. As a child, she planned to become a nun in the Catholic church. In high school, those plans changed and she landed in the insurance industry. After surviving the Blizzard of 1978, Paula vowed never to see snow again and moved to Florida in 1981. She has only returned twice to Massachusetts since then and only during the Spring.
She has two grown children, a son, and a daughter. One interesting fact is Paula’s daughter works with her here at Caton Hosey. Her son is an Army Veteran and is now working in the restaurant business at a local pizza company. She has one eleven-year-old grandson and one “grandpuppy” – both of which she loves dearly.
When she is not working, Paula enjoys reading mystery books, and collecting wine and shot glasses gathered by her friends from their travels. She spends her free time doing yard work and soaking up the Florida sunshine every chance she gets.
Her favorite quote is, “Be with the people who make you laugh.” – Lucy K California
This quote gives you some insight into her fun-loving personality. Paula is a happy, energetic and hard-working member of the Caton Hosey Family. We are proud to have her as part of our team.
