Paula graduated from Ridgetown College in 1999. Along with graduating with honours, she also came home with her dog Elsie and husband Blair. After graduation, she worked in a mixed practice as well as a small animal practice and as of June 2012, she calls IPH her home. Her laugh can be heard a mile away and she takes pride in customer service. Her interests include surgical nursing, internal medicine, and nutrition. Blair and Paula currently reside on the family farm that they share with their three children, their dog Rai, their cats Wendel and Simon, horse Archie, and their herd of Black Angus cattle. When not working or running her children to karate and baseball, Paula enjoys being one of the leaders of the Thorndale 4H beef club.
