Paulette is a pediatric occupational therapist with 25 years of experience serving Bay Area children with special needs. She also has a background in design and accessible environments. Paulette joined the ReCares Board in late 2022 after being a volunteer at the Oakland site for over 5 years. At the start of her OT training she set her mind to (somehow) be involved with the re-use of excess of medical equipment and ReCares is a perfect fit. She thrives working directly with recipients and is grateful for the opportunity to support ReCares mission as a board member.
