Current President, Top 20 Women in Canada & CEO of Best Lifestyle Residence
Pauline is a multi-award winning entrepreneur and community advocate. She truly believes in investing self, resources, talents and gifts back into our community.
Pauline is known for her “Call to Action Vision” during her first year of leadership at the BBPA where she initiated the Inaugural National Black Business and Professional Convention (NBBPC), amongst other new initiatives. It is not surprising that she was recently honoured as one of Canada’s Top 20 Women for 2010 by Women’s Post Canada, as well as one of Canada’s Amazing Women in 2010 by Women Alive and Maranatha News. Her awards stretch across various lines of disciplines within the community, i.e. 2010 Bob Marley Day Award for outstanding contribution to the City of Toronto as a leader and visionary; 2009 African Canadian Achievement Award for Business and community work; 2008 Black History Month Celebration Police and Community Award of Excellence for being a positive role model, enriching the lives of those in need; and one of Bell Canada’s 5 heroes in 2004, to name a few.
She is the executive producer of the Annual Martin Luther King Celebration and the Annual Choirfest which raise funds for Black scholarships. Finally, she believes that we should seek ways of doing more with less, especially in a not-for-profit/charity community.
