Paloma was raised in the dense urban context of Mexico City, where landscape and design play an essential role in improving the quality of life. In her approach to landscape architecture she is continually inspired by the the varied Mexican landscape and the vibrancy of the culture's aesthetic.
Prior to joining MVVA as a full-time employee in 2015, Paloma worked for the firm as an intern for three years. During her internship, she served as liaison for a MVVA Mexico City project, translating documents and managing communications as well researching vegetation and building models. In addition to landscape architecture, Paloma has studied product design, focusing on furniture design, and urban ecology and ecological restoration.
Paloma received a Bachelor of Arts from Parsons the New School Of Design, graduating with honors. She was the recipient of the Tishman Environmental Merit Scholarship, which allowed her to travel to Alaska and work as a volunteer for the Northern Alaska Environmental Center. She earned a Master of Landscape Architecture from Harvard's Graduate School of Design, where she worked as a teaching assistant for both Gary Hilderbrand and Zaneta Hong.
