Michelle Paul – President
Michelle serves as the President and Board Chair of Embracing His Call. She is originally from Ohio, graduating from The University of Toledo. After an early career in marketing, she began a career in finance at Morgan Stanley in Perrysburg, Ohio. In 1999 she relocated to the Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida office to help take care of aging parents. She is a Vice President, Portfolio Manager and Financial Advisor for the First Coast Group. Michelle believes she did not choose a career in finance…it chose her. It is a career in which she says God can use her to help others build their legacy.
Michelle believes strongly in the principles of God and that in order to be blessed you must also strive to be a blessing. She is an active member of the community having sat on the Board of many non-profit organizations. She currently is on the Board of The Clara White Mission, and also the founder and president of Linda’s Legacy, a non-profit organization she started in memory of her late sister, Linda Skeeles. She lives in Ponte Vedra with her family, and in her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She especially enjoys time with her nephew, Bryon, who has the biggest heart she knows and whom she is confident will one day play in the NFL.
Michelle is excited about the ministry of Embracing His Call. “The impact Susan has already made for the Kingdom has been great…but I believe He has called her to carry the message of His heart in even greater ways in this next season of ministry!”

Toni Jones – Treasure
Toni serves as Treasurer of Embracing His Call ministry. Toni began working for The Scott McRae Group soon after college and has been with them for 16 years, currently in the position of underwriting credit manager. She had an encounter with God in 2005 while attending a revival at her boss’s church. That night the Lord radically captured her heart and she has never been the same. The Lord delivered her from the shame of abortion, addiction and promiscuity. One month after she was saved, her mom was diagnosed with cancer and passed away 4 months later. God has used all of the pain and heartache of her life to draw her into a deeper relationship with him.
Since then, God has birthed in her a passion for intercession and has used her to encourage others who are lost and hurting. Toni is active in her local church and serves on the alter team on Sunday mornings. Her greatest joy is her 12 year old son Bryon. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family, listening to worship music, watching her son play football, and shopping with her friends.
