Carole Paulson

Carole Paulson, a longtime member of First Lutheran, recently started as Church Treasurer in the fall of 2013. Carole is married to Jim Erickson and has three children, a step-daughter, and ten grandchildren. She grew up in Aitkin and went to St. Cloud where she earned a BS in Accounting from St. Cloud State and worked for many years as a CPA. In her free time she loves spending time with her grandchildren, who often come to church with her and Jim, crocheting, fishing, reading, and walking. What she likes best about FLC: Friendliness and caring. So many opportunities to serve and work with fun and interesting people.
