Paola has been in the veterinary field for four years now. Her career goal is to become a Registered Veterinary Technician, and is currently enrolled at Pierce College to help make this goal a reality. She has two dogs, Gorda a 5 year old Chow Chow mix and Ami a 2 year old Shih Tzu mix. Both dogs were inherited both from her siblings who moved away.
Her favorite breed is Chihuahua – she had one for 14 years named Chica who was her sassy best friend, and the reason for her passion of the veterinary field. She thinks of her everyday and she continues to bring a smile to her face, even after her passing. She enjoys spending time with her dogs in her free time, reading, roller-bladding, bowling, and spending time with family.
