Paige Burgess brings to her role as Development Officer at Bayshore Christian Ministries 15 years of experience in high-tech & biotech marketing & public relations plus 15 years working with students both as a homeschooling mom and in the non-profit sector.
After completing her Journalism/Public Relations Degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Paige honed her skills in marketing communications, public relations and events production while focusing on the needs of high-tech and bio-tech companies in the Bay Area. She then enjoyed a season of raising 2 sons & homeschooling them through middle school, while also teaching many classes, serving as the Nursery Director at her church, and helping out with non-profit ministries as a community organizer. Paige returns to full-time work as her youngest son starts high school.
When Paige isn't working or enjoying her husband and teenage sons at home in Sunnyvale, she is passionate about travel and has done so extensively, visiting over 50 countries in her lifetime, typically with a backpack on her back. That passion began when Paige's family moved to Egypt during elementary school. She also lived and worked briefly in London after college graduation.
Paige is a foodie, just one of the reasons that travel is such a treat. She is happy when hiking, biking, kayaking, camping, reading and watching movies and documentaries. She loves Jesus, worshipful singing, praying and studying the Bible.
