Paula won the junior and senior national championships in 2008 and followed with a third place finish at the 2009 Under-23 World Championships.
In 2010, at age 21, she won back-to-back WCS races in London and Kitzbuhel and finished fifth at the World Championships. Her 2011 season started with a 1st place at the Sydney WCS, 1st place at the Madrid WCS, and 1st place at the Kitzbuhel WCS.
