WICT Staff: Initiatives Manager Paula Atallah (aka: Savvy Initiatives Aficionado)

In her own words… 

“I brought to WICT an intense passion and drive for women’s issues and a creative zeal for the communications/media industry.  My combined interests, wittiness and creativity, make me a perfect fit for the organization and the cable industry.  Providing a refreshed and youthful perspective to WICT’s mission to empower women leaders in the cable and telecommunication industry I am instrumental in maintaining the success of key organization initiatives and advocacy programs and also ensure the authenticity and promotion of the esteemed industry workforce study, the PAR Initiative.  

I am the eldest child of George and Sandra Atallah and adore my brother Chalita, and my sister, Katie and I, love each other with all our hearts . . . because that is what sisters are suppose to do!  When not in the office or studying for class I can be found on the soccer field, dribbling and slide tackling. I’m also an avid scrapbooker and lover of country music, and if I can find the time, will one day learn how to fix my leaky faucets!”
