Our Story

After working in Corporate Human Resources for many years, I founded J. PR & Associates with a sincere desire to help employers create harmonious and engaging workplaces that can change the world. 

We transform workplaces through customized consultative strategies, impactful training workshops, and leadership development. 

This is what I know: People Success is directly linked to Sensational Leadership. Leadership establishes a successful company culture that has a recognizable distinction, unmatched collaborative work teams and a meaningful community of trust.

How It All Started

My passion for HR actually started when I was a sophomore in college. At the age of 18, I began partnering with very large companies to connect them with quality talent. This gave me the opportunity to study the inner workings of these corporate game changers. I was young and eager to learn, so I did. When I was not in class, I was working. This set the tone for the next several years of my professional life.

Over the years, I had wonderful HR Leadership roles with national and international companies that challenged me but also assured me that I could do more innovative things in this great profession. Managing teams of Senior Human Resource Professionals and providing HR services to over 6,000 client companies only heighten my ingenuity.

Relying on my entire body of work, which includes Employee Development, Talent Acquisition, Internal Investigations, Leadership Development, HR Training, Employee Relations, Performance Management and Business Development, I was ready to do more.

I began working closely with Sales, Operations, IT and other departments to develop programs that increased quality service, revenue, trusts and reliability for my clients.

My Opportunity For Change

Because HR seemed to be an afterthought as it relates to business growth and increased revenue, I designed J .PR in a way that would allow us to comprehensively analyze each area of business to identify opportunities for change. We develop customized strategies that help deliver the change our clients need. Then we create and solidify an effective implementation plan that delivers solutions that work.

I knew our strategies needed to be shared more broadly so, J. PR was born. This provided us with the opportunity to change the world of Human Resources. This was exciting because I knew we could make a beneficial difference in the workplace, and thank God, we did.

We know that providing our clients with information is great but focused execution is priceless and productive. We also know that HR Excellence and Sensational Leadership actively contribute to the overall growth of our clients and the people they serve. 

Where We Are Now

We are excited because our clients now include Organizations, Individual Leaders, Entrepreneurs and Dedicated People who are ready to flourish while mastering the change required to exceed their business and professional objectives.

You see, we believe EVERY one of our clients has the opportunity to excel beyond what they have envisioned.

Working with outstanding organizations who trust our expertise, as we partner to develop innovative strategies that align with their core business objectives, is beyond gratifying.

The delight that comes from working one-on-one with brilliantly committed people, who surprise themselves when serving others, while developing THEIR OWN distinct greatness, is invaluable.

It’s not just about our services; it is about YOU. We literally enjoy your success as much as you do. It feels a bit selfish, but we love it.

PR such as PaulaSpeaks and PRI. PaulaSpeaks includes Paula’s speaking services, her podcast, and business blog.  PRI highlights and supports our wonderful online community with our signature career and leadership coaching services, online learning, and business owner support services.
