From her first office job at the age of 15, Paula Dodds fell in love with putting systems in place for organizing and easier access. Granted, she started off just one step above the mailroom as a file clerk, but she quickly grew that skillset to become a company trainer and then office manager by the age of 19. Working through her business management and marketing classes at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, she realized that while she loved admin work, she also liked being her own boss… And so her entrepreneurial spirit was sparked.

In 2002, Paula Dodds founded P.S. Dodds and started working with her clients to make their businesses extraordinary. She focuses on virtual team building and training, virtual administrative assistance, setting up virtual protocols and systems, and copywriting. With almost 20 years of administrative and team-building experience, Paula brings professionalism, innovation, and ingenuity to every project.

During Paula’s career, she has served the executive search and staffing, nonprofit and healthcare markets, in addition to professional business and life coaches. From developing presentation materials and reports and database administration to creating new website content and managing social media activities to supporting marketing plans, Paula focuses on managing internal administration and information technology needs to support her clients. As an expert at establishing and operating virtual workplaces, Paula has published articles on working from home, entrepreneurship/entrepreneurial parenting, virtual team management, customer service for virtual businesses, and work/life balance.

She remains active in her community by volunteering for her daughters’ school activities, civic initiatives, selected local nonprofits, and her church. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska, with her very patient fiance; and is currently raising four beautiful, independent daughters (ages 20, 17, 10, and 1) and wrangling a “ferocious” puppy named Gage.
