Paula Denison is running for State House in District 75, which includes Benton County and part of Iowa County.

Denison was born in Iowa City. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a double major in Political Science and Psychology.

Denison’s father was a small business owner who paid competitive wages, provided health care, paid time off, and other benefits to his employees. Her mother was a nurse at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics. Together, they raised and put four children through college.

After college, Paula served as a paralegal at the Arizona Department of Health Services. Upon returning to Iowa, she worked at the Johnson County Attorney’s office and then a law firm in Cedar Rapids. In 2013, Paula took a leap of faith and obtained her insurance license to begin a new chapter in her professional life.

Paula is married to Neal Denison. Neal is a proud union member (ASCME Local 620). The couple moved to Van Horne looking for the quiet serenity of life in the country.
