Michelle Paul - President
Michelle serves as the President and Board Chair of Embracing HIS Call. She is originally from Ohio, graduating from The University of Toledo. After an early career in marketing, she began a career in finance at Morgan Stanley in Perrysburg, Ohio. In 1999 she relocated to the Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida office to help take care of aging parents.
She is a Vice President, Portfolio Manager and Financial Advisor for the First Coast Group. Michelle believes she did not choose a career in finance…it chose her. It is a career in which she says God can use her to help others build their legacy.
Michelle believes strongly in the principles of God and that in order to be blessed you must also strive to be a blessing. She is an active member of the community having sat on the Board of many non-profit organizations. She currently is on the Board of The Clara White Mission, and also the founder and president of Linda’s Legacy, a non-profit organization she started in memory of her late sister, Linda Skeeles. She lives in Ponte Vedra with her family, and in her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She especially enjoys time with her nephew, Bryon, who has the biggest heart she knows and whom she is confident will one day play in the NFL.
Michelle is excited about the ministry of Embracing HIS Call. “The impact Susan has already made for the Kingdom has been great…but I believe He has called her to carry the message of HIS heart in even greater ways in this next season of ministry!”
