Paula is an experience designer at Adaptive Path. She is a strong believer that our designs define who we are and who we will become; she is passionate about designs that illuminate our best human qualities: Kindness, respect, honesty, courage, humor, charm, integrity. One of her strengths as a designer is showing her clients the worlds they can create and the people they have the opportunity to influence when they make great ideas become great products and experiences.
Throughout her career, Paula has pursued her interest in the situative and psychosocial nature of how people interact with artifacts and environments. She advocates that great experiences require thinking strategically about the ecological systems formed by people, organizations, markets, and stakeholders and delivering products and services that evolve these systems in positive ways.
