She began working with sustainable design, trends related to sustainability and environmental subjects more than six years ago, and became a referent of the green scene in her home town. She has been profiled in and consulted for articles in publications such as Elle Argentina, Women's Health, LUZ Magazine, Critica Newspaper, Living Magazine and C Magazine, among others; and invited to give talks and lectures on Latin American sustainable design at local universities such as Universidad Catolica Argentina and Universidad de Moron.

Previously, she worked as a consumer trends spotter and cultural interpreter for the U.S. company Iconoculture.

Paula is a vegetarian, moves by bike and has developed a special love for all kinds of plants and dogs. For work and for pleasure she has been to 45 cities in 15 countries, and hopes that number will increase in coming years, offsetting her flights of course.
