Dr. Paolucci was born and raised in Salina, Kansas. She has always had a love for animals and knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a Veterinarian.
She attended college at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kansas where she received a B.S. in Animal Science. From there, she went on to participate in the veterinary program at KSU. Her interests include internal medicine and exotic animal medicine. During veterinary school, she even took two trips to South Africa to work with a wildlife veterinary program studying Wildlife and Conservation Medicine. Following graduation from veterinary school in May 2017, Dr. Paolucci moved to Wichita to join her husband, Tony.
Dr. Paolucci currently has two cats, a Russian Blue named Maya and a black domestic short hair named Axton. She rescued both of them while she was in college.
During her free time, she enjoys spending time with friends, family and her fur babies, going to the zoo and, during the summer months, spending time outdoors at the lake.
She is excited to start her new journey with Dr. Summers, Dr. Bruce and the rest of the Prairie Ridge Animal Hospital family.
