Biography

Paula Bele is the Assistant Director at Carlow University Greensburg.  She has been with Carlow for fourteen years doing inside/outside recruiting for following programs; Carlow + Westmoreland Joint Admissions, RN/BSN, and Family Nurse Practitioner for both the Greensburg and Cranberry campus.  As Assistant Director, she also manages the day-to-day running of the school and works directly with the students that are attending the Greensburg site.

Paula's goal at Carlow Greensburg is to make sure all new and current students are well informed and comfortable in the college setting which can be stressful.  She always provides a basket of chocolates on her desk and from time to time, brings in cookies and doughnuts.

During the fourteen years at Carlow, five of those years were spent attending the University.  Working full time, attending classes full time, and raising a family was somewhat crazy but she succeeded.  At the age of 54 she received both her B.S. & M.S. Degrees in Business Management and Training & Development.  When she hears people say, "I'm too old to go back to school" she uses herself as an example and states, "You are never too old to go back to school if it is something you really want to do for yourself."

She has three grown children.  Her oldest son lives in Chicago, she also has a son who is married and lives in Greensburg, and her youngest, a daughter, is married and lives in Long Beach, NY.  When she can manage, she loves going to visit and shop.
