Paula tried indoor cycling in 2015 to manage stress of being a single parent and a full time student while working. She immediately experienced better sleep, increased energy, and weight loss. She knew then spinning would always be a part of her workout routine! Now with only a few short months away from her son graduating from high school and Paula earning a doctorate in education, she is ready to give back to others what she's gained as a My Ride customer--good health, motivation, and self-determination. Her dissertation research on persistence has taught her anyone can persevere through challenges when provided the right environment to do so, and Paula knows My Ride is that place!

Outside the studio, Paula is a Performance Improvement Specialist for the Coast Guard, enjoys traveling, and is preparing her high school senior for the real world.
