Paige is involved in a variety of community projects including Stop Children's Cancer, and Gainesville Pet Rescue, just to name a few. She bakes one to two cakes a week to donate to local charities.As a child in rural West Virginia, Paige says the 'Golden Rule' was a guiding principle instilled by her parents. It's a philosophy she brings to her work with charitable groups, and anyone in need.
Whether it's helping someone find a state agency to solve a problem, or calling and emailing viewers, Paige is always giving of her time to benefit North Central Floridians.
Every Monday night at 11, she hosts a special feature report entitled "Cold Case Files." It features unsolved murders under investigation by local law enforcement agencies. Paige is proud to have anchored the Edward R. Murrow award-winning 5:30-6:00 newscast in 2007. The newscasts centered on the Gainesville Student Murders and the execution on Danny Rolling.

Paige was honored as a "Woman Who Makes A Difference" by the Gateway Girl Scout Council and was named an "Outstanding American" by Alachua County's African American Cultural and Historical Society as well as a Woman of Distinction by Santa Fe College. She will be inducted into the West Liberty State College Wall of Fame in October of 2009 for her outstanding community service.
Two of her greatest joys include her minature bull terrier and chow/border collie mix dogs.
