About Paulina

Paulina is originally from Boulder, Colorado and completed an undergraduate degree in biology and a master's degree in biomedical sciences, both in Colorado State University. She helped teach the graduate and undergraduate animal anatomy dissection courses as a Graduate Teaching Assitant. Paulina was also an integral part of the Virtual Veterinary Educational Tools team and took the lead in dissections and photogrammetry photography to expand the program with more specimens. During the pandemic, Paulina had the opportunity to reconstruct a horse for equine veterinarian and legend Dr. Marv Beeman to help educate horse owners and clinicians about anatomy and improve equine sports medicine. After she graduated, Paulina helped teach as a locum anatomy instructor at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. She returned to CSU to take on the role of animal anatomy lab coordinator in the Department of Biomedical Sciences where she helps run the lab, creates and rebuilds teaching specimens, and helps instruct veterinary, graduate, and undergraduate students in animal anatomy dissection courses. Paulina is a member of American Anatomy Veterinary Association and enjoys education research that can improve how students learn anatomy. Outside of work, Paulina enjoys dirt biking, skiing, muay thai, and hiking with her border collie/cattle dog mix Scout.
