Paula obtained her degree as a certified veterinary technician from Parkland College in 1984 and has been working at VCA Cairo Animal Hospital since 1992.
In 2002, she became interested in equine pain management through massage and became a registered professional member of International Association of Massage and Bodywork. Her modalities include massage and reiki techniques incorporating essential oils as necessary. While this endeavor started as an equine interest, she also provides her services for dogs in need of rehabilitation or massage therapy.
Paula's main hobby is caring for her horses, Megan-the perfect horse, Maddie, and Lily. She also manages to care for her six dogs, Decon, JoDee, Homer, Cockroach, Bella and Mookie, two cats, Bailen and Dick, and an entire farm that is home to bunnies, chickens and a goat, Robin, and of course her daughter, Shania!
