Paula set up her own building company several years ago when she realised that most women would prefer to hire a woman to work in their house. Her father was a master builder and carpenter, and her interest in construction started at the age of 7 when she first picked up a chisel in his workshop. She has since gained a BA and MA in Interior Design. MRS FIXIT is also the name of Paula's highly successful South London company.
