Paragon is a Women Owned Small Business We are three strong women, each with our own unique talents and skill sets. We were brought together by a common employer, and we'd often talk about how we could do it better. We wanted to break away from the traditional administrative political environment and be a new type of behavioral health provider, absent of the corporate ladder. Our goal is to create a safe environment for our employees and clients. Venturing out on Our Own One day, while eating noodles at our favorite Thai restaurant, we decided to do just that! Venturing out on our own, creating our own business, and developing our structure was no easy decision to make. It took 10 seconds of courage, and here we are. We are so lucky to have the support of our spouses, families, and professional team. If it wasn't for the push to create something new, we would not have had the strength to pursue our dream.
