Since her debut for Umeå in 2001, Paulson was an integral part of the team's defence. Throughout her 10 seasons with Umeå, they won one Super Cup, two UEFA Women's Cups, four Swedish Cups, and five Swedish championship gold medals.

In 2011 Umeå gave Paulson a rehabilitation contract to prove her fitness, but released her during the season. A tribunal later ruled that they broke the contract and awarded Paulson 138,000 kronor.[3]
