Paul has an education and development consulting business with his wife and owns a small family farm with his brother and sister. He is excited to contribute to the legacy of Lidwin Dirne, the founder of Heritage Health.
While working over the past ten years, Paul spent time earning both a Master’s and Ph.D. in Educational Leadership to better shape his understanding of the educational system. He has been proud to call North Idaho home for the past six years, coming to love the many wonderful aspects of living in as Paul describes it, “God’s Country.”
His wife, Julie, has family who grew up in North Idaho and currently lives locally, in Post Falls. Paul and Julie have two young sons. Paul has been active in various community groups including those focused on community activism, tourism, the arts, and economic development.
For fun, Paul enjoys spending time at one of our community’s true Gems, the Kroc Center, where you can find him bright and early almost every morning. He also enjoys hiking in our local mountains, playing Parks and Rec softball, and most importantly, spending time with his wife and sons.
