I can't imagine collaborating with a more talented, hard-working and gifted performer than Paula. Her natural talent has been enriched by exceptional training on both sides of the Atlantic, and despite her many skills and experience, she remains humble, sensitive and encouraging to fellow performers and students alike. Paula has that rare personality that draws others towards her- the definition of a leader. Whilst her quick wit keeps everyone on their toes, she has the enviable skill of disarming and relaxing even the most nervous of students through playful ice-breaking, and even a little self mockery. Paula is an absolute joy to work with.
