Paula Boggs returns to the Treehouse stage

Army airborne veteran, corporate attorney, social activist and eclectic singer-songwriter Paula Boggs and her six-piece band traverse jazz, world, folk, rock and Americana music, and are bringing that melding — what they call “Seattle-Brewed Soul-grass” — back to the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 14.

Tickets for reserved table seating are $20. Visit www.treehousebainbridge.com to purchase and/or learn more.

Boggs served eight years as an officer in the Army, earned airborne wings and a Congressional appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy – among America’s first women to do so.

She is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley School of Law and earned a bachelor’s degree in International Studies (economics, energy policy) from Johns Hopkins University. She was also an adjunct professor at the University of Washington School of Law.

Boggs served as executive vice president and general counsel at Starbucks Corporation from 2002 to 2012.

Since leaving Starbucks, Boggs has volunteered for a presidential campaign as a national surrogate, serves on for-profit and nonprofit boards, and raises or gives money in support of causes she champions.

Boggs, the founder of Boggs Media, is also a philanthropist, fundraiser and public speaker.

She had a 14-year career in public service, including as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, and in various capacities as an attorney for the Army, the Department of Defense and the White House Office of Legal Counsel.

In 2013, President Obama appointed her to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities, where she served before stepping down in 2017.
