The Office of the Bishop is pleased to announce that Paula Schaap has joined our staff as the new Director of Communications!
Paula's lifelong vocation has been writing, telling and discovering stories. One of her greatest joys as a writer and editor is to help others find their voice and tell their own stories. At the congregations where she worshipped, she put her skills as a journalist to work helping them improve their social media presence and increasing press coverage for events.
She has been an editor and reporter for more than a decade, covering a range of subjects, including religion, science, film, the law and business. Most recently, she was an editor with Bloomberg News. Before she went into journalism, she was a commercial litigator in New York City. She has a law degree from Brooklyn Law School, an MA in Interactive Journalism from American University and an MFA in film from Columbia University.
Paula is married to the Rev. Andrew Kadel. Through him, she is blessed to have three grown daughters and one granddaughter. Please join us in welcoming Paula to the diocese!
