Paige Boardwine

Regional Supervisor/SW VA

Hello! I graduated from Concord University with my Bachelors in Psychology in 2015. I am originally from McDowell County, West Virginia but moved to Tazewell Virgina soon after I graduated college to find better employment. I am now a Regional Supervisor for the Southwest Area.

I chose this field because I have always had a passion for helping others. Since working for Stand Up, I have grown to be a better person because of what this job has shown me. My customers have taught me so many things and shown me, as well as others, that the "impossible" is possible. I absolutely love watching them succeed and watching them gain confidence in themselves. I honestly cannot think of one aspect of my job that I do not enjoy.

My previous job experience was a waitress. One of my favorite things was being around people and helping them with the things that they needed. I love to see people smile, and one way to do that is to make your customers happy!

My hobbies include being outdoors. I love to hunt, fish, kayak, etc. I also enjoy playing tennis and hiking.

My favorite quote is:
You are you, that is truer than true, there is no one alive who is youer than you - Dr. Seuss
