Paula Fulton

Nursery Caregiver

My name is Paula Fulton. I have been the Nursery Care giver here at Bashford UMC since 2005. I enjoy bonding with infants and small children. They have so much energy, imagination, creativity, and they tell it like it is.

I was born and raised here in Madison. I attended Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota where I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Work and Teaching. I'm a mother of two children. I enjoy cooking, reading, gardening and walking the family dog.
