Along the way, she's had teachers who inspired her and fostered her passion for fitness and self-improvement. Today she will tell you, “I am living every American woman’s dream - to have it all and share it freely.”
She loves being a Fitness Trainer and Physical Therapy Aid. She has been a Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer for eighteen years, having chosen this career path because she, “wanted to inspire women to have it all and enjoy life to the fullest.”
Paula began in 1993 doing Aerobic classes and competing in Ms. Fitness USA fitness competitions. She went back to school, studied physical education and became a National Certified Trainer. Paula works with people of all levels and ages. Her favorite client is an 83 year old man who really gets a kick out of her competing. He loves to show his friends his trainer’s photos!
Paula took ten years off from competing to raise two beautiful daughters. She returned to the stage in 2007, with the goal to show her daughters if you want something bad enough and train hard enough you can achieve anything including an IFBB Pro card. After years of near misses Paula won the 2011 NPC Jr. USA’s Fitness Overall earning her IFBB Pro Status.
Paula would like to travel all over America, promoting health and fitness, while talking with people about balancing family, fun, health, career and spirit.Read more
