Employee Spotlight : Paula Doucette
Meet Paula Doucette. As Director of Marketing and Communications for Lupoli Companies, she is responsible for the planning and development of marketing strategies and public relations activities. This unique position manages internal and external communications for not only our corporate initiatives, but the Real Estate Division as well.
Wearing many hats, she thrives in an environment of innovation and creativity. “I love collaborating with this talented and supportive team who work tirelessly every day to get positive results,” says Paula. “They really motivate me, but best of all, they always make me smile.”
This weekend, Paula is gearing for a 50-mile bike ride from Carver to Hyannis Port in support of the Best Buddies International organization. “I am very fortunate to have a great friendship with a young man with down syndrome who has been an ambassador for the Best Buddies program for 9 years,” says Paula. Best Buddies International runs programs to help people with IDD form meaningful friendships with their peers, secure successful jobs, live independently, improve public speaking, self-advocacy and communication skills, and feel valued by society.
Wanting to give back and support a meaningful cause, this is Paula’s fourth year teaming up with family and friends to raise money in the Best Buddies Hyannis Port Challenge. This one-day event features many ways to participate, you can choose from a 100, 50 or 20-mile bike ride or a 5K walk/run. “It is so gratifying and humbling to see so many people along the route that are appreciative of the efforts of all the participants,” says Paula. “I challenge you all to find a cause that you can get behind and hopefully you’ll have as much fun as me.”
