Paula is currently a Tech at the South Loop Clinic, studying pre-requisite classes for the PTA program at Malcolm X College.

She is an adaptive CrossFit athlete and was the number 1 athlete in her division in 2019. Paula’s passion to help others achieve what they believe to be out or reach, and herself being an adaptive person, is what drives her desire to pursue a career in physical therapy.
