NY NJ Trail Conference Headquarters


The Trail Conference welcomes Paula to our trail family and wishes Kylie the best of luck on her next adventure.

Welcome, Paula!

Paula Sandusky joined the finance team as the Finance & Operations Assistant this spring. She enjoyed a long career in hospitality with roles in information technology and operations and more recently as general manager at the Stony Point Center. As a transplant from Boston, Paula has enjoyed exploring Hudson Valley rail trails on her bike, beaches from Long Island to the Jersey Shore, and hiking paths from Norvin Green to the Catskills. She is a proud North Rockland community member, having raised three (now young adult) children there. She works to stay grounded in the practice of yoga and practices escapism as an avid baseball fan.

Happy Trails, Kylie!

Kylie Yang is leaving the Trail Conference to join the Continental Divide Trail Coalition as Field Programs Manager. She first began working for the Trail Conference in 2018, serving as a New Jersey Appalachian Trail Ridgerunner. She spent two seasons maintaining trails and shelters, assisting the West Jersey Crew, and educating hikers on Leave No Trace before being hired full-time as New Jersey Program Coordinator. We wish Kylie all the best on her next adventure!
