“Working or travelling with Paula is always a pleasure. She seeks out adventures at every corner and writes stories that tempt armchair travellers to their feet. What more can you ask for?” – Joanne Elves, Writer and Editor

“Paula is the kind of writer who gets to a destination ready to squeeze every minute out of the day. Her energy, enthusiasm and eye-wide open view of the world is refreshing. She always writes with an engaged window on the world view, whether she’s having a banjo lesson with a local musician, or leaving fresh tracks on a ski trail. Either way, you’ll feel like you want to do what she’s doing.” – Lisa Monforton, Writer and Editor

“Paula Worthington is a professional, passionate and personable journalist who I had the privilege of working with when she came to Gwaii Haanas. She was open to participating in a pretty hectic schedule that included a Haida monumental pole raising, potlach, cultural dinner and a long day in the field spent exploring a number of Haida cultural sites. Her stories about Haida Gwaii and Gwaii Haanas captured the culture, landscape and people of these misty island accurately. I would be happy to work with Paula on any of her storytelling adventures in the future.” – Miranda Post, PR & Communications Officer, Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, National Marine Conservation Area Reserve, and Haida Heritage Site
