Hailing from Ann Arbor, MI, Paula was first introduced to physical therapy when she signed up to volunteer at the University of Michigan Hospital in high school. She was placed with a physical therapist in the hydrotherapy department and saw first hand the impact physical therapy can have on quality of life. Her interest was piqued and she continued to volunteer at various physical therapy clinics through college and after, even as she moved to the mountains of Colorado. That move also sparked a love of the outdoors and shifted her focus to the environment. She went on to get a masters in environmental science and worked in the field until deciding to stay home with her kids.
After spending over a decade at home, she is thrilled to be back working with physical therapists in a clinical setting. Outside of work she loves skiing, trail running, spending time in the mountains and hanging with her husband, two kids and two dogs.
