Paula Bookidis

CEO, Girl Scouts of Central Texas

Girl Scouts of Central Texas CEO, Paula Bookidis, began her journey in Girl Scouts on the front lines of camp-outs, volunteer trainings, and cookie sales as a troop leader! Now, as our G.I.R.L.-in-Chief, Paula brings a unique perspective and a tried and true passion for the Girl Scout mission into the executive suite.

Paula stepped into her role at Girl Scouts from her position as a partner at Sense Corp, where she kept things running efficiently and effectively as the Managing Director – Telecom. A dynamic leader and management powerhouse, Paula is also a believer in the power of giving back, demonstrated in her development of Sense Corp’s Community Outreach programs, which has provided over $4M to non-profits.

Paula’s happy place is floating the river, reading a book, sipping on iced tea. In her words, she is “married to the funniest, most supportive guy” and they have three daughters together.
