Paula Weaver PA-C
My name is Paula and I live in Salt Lake City. I am originally from St. George (born and raised) but came up north for school. Strangely enough one of my favorite hobbies is working on my house and yard. I have been known to spend my weekends covered in dirt in my backyard. I also like to road bike, snowboard, backpack, and canyoneering. I started and finished my schooling at the University of Utah. I received my bachelor’s in Behavioral Science and Health and moved on to get my master’s in Nutrition and finally made my way through the Physician Assistant program.
Through my schooling I never thought about practicing in pain management. I was always interested in primary care because I wanted to see my patients on a somewhat regular basis and get to know them well. After graduating I realized I had the opportunity to be more a part of my patients’ lives in pain management than anywhere else. Chronic pain is a very trying burden that many people unfortunately face. My goal is to keep my patient’s as functional as possible and enjoying their lives.
