Paulina is a rookie member of the New Orleans Saintsations. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Paulina began her classical ballet and rhythmic gymnastics training at the age of four. She later incorporated other dance genres into her training including jazz, lyrical, flamenco, tap, contemporary, hip-hop, and Russian folk dancing.
Paulina’s hard-work and dedication towards dance is equally paralleled to her passion for medicine. As an undergraduate at UCLA, Paulina taught dance therapy lessons to elderly patients suffering from osteoporosis and co-authored three papers related to bone tissue engineering and pathology.
She is currently a first year medical student at Tulane University and is interested in pediatric surgery and dance medicine.
“I am excited to be a Saintsation not only because I love to dance, but also because I hope to inspire health and fitness within our community.”
