Paige finds it one of her great honors to be on the board at Pride Foundation.
Paige lives in Kalispell with her family and dogs. She has volunteered as part of the Pride Foundation Montana Advisory Council since 2015. She has focused on supporting LGBTQI+ youth as well as helping Trans & queer homeless youth. She has also been active with local politics and her daughter’s school PTO. She enjoys crafting, music, cooking, vintage clothing.
Professionally, Paige has spent most of her adult life helping people. She was a nanny while her children were young then a part-time special education para-professional for Kalispell Public Schools. She transitioned to the non-profit sector both as a volunteer with the Pride Foundation and shortly after began working for Love Lives Here, an affiliate of the Montana Human Rights Network. She then spent two years assisting to establish All Families Healthcare, an inclusive gender affirming reproductive health clinic in Whitefish, Montana. She is now a youth counselor at the Flathead Youth Home located in Kalispell.
As a queer woman living in a very conservative, rural area Paige always finds herself in the trenches of this work. She is very pleased to be a part of the PF board so that she can absorb wisdom from such an amazing team, bring that knowledge back to the Flathead Valley, and share the experiences of her community with the rest of the region as well.
