I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico and would say it is the best city in Mexico, but I may be a little biased! I was very blessed to grow up in a wonderful, large, close family. I have two younger brothers, and many first cousins that I am also close with. I deeply believe in the importance of a loving, supportive family.
People describe her as a warm, happy person who loves helping others.
I loved school growing up and was a good student. I started playing tennis at the age of 8 and never stopped! I got my Bachelors and Master's degrees both in Industrial Engineering. I teach engineering at a community college and absolutely love teaching - I believe teaching is my calling. I plan on continuing to work after we adopt a second child, but I will take a few months off in the beginning. The great thing is, teaching at the college level offers a lot of flexibility! I teach many of my courses online, and basically have summers off. I love spending time at home with Ben and Lucas, and we like being outdoors. I also enjoy spending time with friends, going to the movies with Ben, and volunteering in community events. One of my hobbies is traveling and I have been very fortunate to travel to places like Brazil, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, and several places in Europe and the U.S.
Ben shares: What I love about my wife is that she has been my rock ever since we started dating. Right away, I knew that I wanted to spend my life with her. The way that we, as two very different personalities (she's VERY extroverted, and I am more of a home-body), can complement each other is a testament to our fundamental love for one another. Paulina is very active both professionally and in our community. She always wants to give more and more to people, whether it be extra projects at work, church groups/activities, tennis or planning travel, either for us or for her family to come and visit us, which puts me in awe of her and her capacity to sacrifice for others. Even through bad times, we seem to find fun in everything. Paulina always knows exactly how to cheer me up, even when I am not having a great day. Just her presence centers me and gives me the drive to be the best husband that I can be.
