In Her Personal Life

When not at work, Dr. Paulk is an advocate for domestic and international adoption. Her daughter, Lily, was adopted from China in 2008. There is  lots of play in the Paulk household – especially with “Lily’s two dogs, Katie and Molly, who were rescued from a local shelter. While trained as a classical pianist, these days Dr. Paulk is mostly a “weekend musician.” When time allows, she also enjoys creating  ceramic art pieces for friends and family.
