Paulina grew up in Los Angeles, California and moved to Orange County at the age of 10. At the age of 16, Paulina began working at Aliso Viejo Country Club in the KidsKave Childcare Department. Soon after Paulina took on more responsibility for KidsKave. She began planning events and created a welcoming atmosphere for all children. After working in KidsKave for two years Paulina became the Membership Assistant and KidsKave Supervisor. She also assisted in the Accounting Department. Dabbling in these different pockets of the Club gave Paulina the great experience she needed to be promoted to Member Relations Coordinator. Paulina worked in this role for two years before being promoted to Membership Director in 2020. Paulina believes one of the most wonderful attributes of the Club is the Members; they are a testament to the incredible community Aliso Viejo Country Club has created.

My passion for Member Relations and Event Planning can be tracked back to my pre-professional days. I love connecting with people and getting others excited about the things that I'm excited about! Whether I was working with Food and Beverage or as a Marketing Professional, I've been on a path to building relationships from the start. This passion carried me through my education at California State University, Fullerton in Business Marketing. When I am away from the office I enjoy traveling, shopping, wine tasting, and doing yoga. I am dedicated to having fun and making people's dreams become a reality!
