Paulina originally hails from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and did a significant portion of growing up in Houston, Texas. She moved to Austin in 2009 to get a degree in Geography and English at the University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em!). Paulina currently works as a city planner in the City of Austin's Planning and Zoning Department. When she's not solving Austin's traffic problems, she can be found playing outside and climbing trees. Paulina's life has been shaped by a number of experiences from both outdoor adventures as well as mentors in her life (three older siblings, a number of teammates throughout the Austin ultimate community, professors, peers ,etc). She hopes to be able to share in fun learning experiences with Austin's youth and serve as a resource for their formative years.
