After relocating to Dallas, Texas, Pauline attended and graduated from Paul Quinn College with a Bachelor of Science in Sociology and later went on to Prairie View A&M University, where she earned a Master of Arts degree in counseling. Shortly thereafter, Pauline was appointed Director for a leading agency in homeless services creating sustainable, affordable supportive housing for individuals and families affected by HIV/AIDS.
