Get to Know the DOE Team: Meet Paula Nadeau

Paula Nadeau

Maine DOE Team member Paula Nadeau is being highlighted this week as part of the Get to Know the Maine DOE Campaign. Learn a little more about Paula in the brief question and answer below.

What are your roles with DOE?

My role within DOE is Office Specialist I. What that means within Child Nutrition is that I take care of RFPs, contracts, our website, scheduling webinars and training and whatever else comes my way. Now that our meetings and upcoming trainings are virtual, that’s added a new spin to it all.

What do you like best about your job?

I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with. I also love that no two days are really ever the same; I can come in thinking it is going to be a relatively quiet day and before I know it, it is 4:00 and I haven’t stopped.

How or why did you decide on this career?

How I chose this career? Well, that’s a long story and it chose me.

What do you like to do outside of work for fun?

Outside of work, I love to spend time in my craft room, sit on my front porch reading a book or working on my somewhat green thumb.
