• Paul Garza

    Senior Director, Genentech
    When you meet Paul you will notice how he leads with his heart and backs it up with strategic focus. Giving back to our local community is important to him and modeling how critical this is for his two daughters (Joelle and Brooklyn) is a big part of why he joined our board in 2014.  Born and raised in California he completed his education by obtaining his degree in Biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz and continued onto his 25 year career in driven leadership. Currently he is the Senior Director of Quality Control for Genentech in Oceanside which serves our community in many facets.  


    When it comes to the programs at Lifeline Paul is inspired by all of them and they push him to be the best board member he can be, but he does have a particular passion for LifeSpring and their ability to transition youth on their journey to self-resilience. 

    Paul is married to his best friend, Jessica and together they are raising two wonderful daughters. When not leading his team at Genentech or supporting Lifeline he enjoys weightlifting and competing in amateur strongman competitions.
