Paulina was born and raised in New Mexico where her family roots are deeply entrenched.  In 1598, her ancestors came to the "New World" and in 1610 helped establish the settlement known today as Santa Fe.  However, most of her adult life has been spent in California where her children and grandchildren reside.


She began her writing career in 1991 as a Contributing Writer for the Inland Empire Hispanic News, an English-language newspaper with an educational format. She wrote special interest stories, profiles of community leaders and articles dealing with political issues. In 1996, she began writing for Latina Style magazine as a freelance writer. Her articles focused on career information, current events and entertainment. Between 1996 and 2002 she contributed to eight inspirational books published by Starburst Publishers. She began writing for Ezine Articles in 2010 and has achieved Platinum status.   

Paulina has a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation Counseling from California State University, San Bernardino and is registered with the Board of the Behavioral Science as an LPC Intern. She has worked with families and youth in various capacities including crisis intervention and maintenance. Her hands-on experience has given her valuable insight into the damaging effects of trauma resulting from loss and the importance of dealing with negative emotions. 


In 2009, she began writing books on grief recovery. Her book set is titled, A Time to Heal. She followed-up with a second book in 2010 titled Life Interrupted: Grief Recovery Guide and Workbook. She's currently conducting "Healing From Loss" workshops. Please visit "Healing From Loss" for additional information about the books or to schedule a workshop.

Her third book, The American Southwest: Pride~Prejudice~Perseverance, is a historical overview of the various cultures that have populated the Southwest from ancient time to the present. It renders a clear perspective on immigration and the benefits to the U.S. The last chapter provides statistics regarding Latinos and education and examines the attainment gap. The book contains maps, graphs, a glossary and a well-documented bibliography.  

The American Southwest appeals to educators, students, policy makers and the general public. It has been endorsed by Tom Rivera, Ed.D., Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies at California State University, San Bernardino and is in circulation at the university’s library. It is also in circulation at the University of California, Riverside, the University of LaVerne and at the San Bernardino County Museum. Paulina is currently lecturing at various venues on "Latinos and Education in the 21st Century."

Her most recent book, The Littlest Chef: Fun and Healthy Recipes for Children (2015), was inspired by her hands-on cooking experiences with her grand daughters. The Littlest Chef contains healthy alternatives to common food ingredients, interesting food facts and dozens of fun and easy-to-make recipes. The book appeals to children, parents, grandparents, schools, pediatricians, children’s health advocates and many others.  

Contact Paulina for more information about her lectures or to schedule one for your organization.
