Dr. Paul hails from Apple Creek, Ohio, and for him, veterinary medicine runs in the family. His father is a retired animal science professor at the Wooster branch of OSU, and his uncle has been a small animal veterinarian for many years. After receiving his B.S. in Zoology from OSU (where he was a member of the crew team), followed by his DVM, Dr. Paul practiced for several years with his uncle on the west side of Cleveland.
In his spare time, Paul is an accomplished acoustic guitar player. He enjoys practicing his guitar daily, writing songs, and performing in the area. Paul also enjoys spending time with his children, and recently built them a treehouse! Other interests include college football (especially the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions) and vacationing with his family in North Carolina.
