Early in her medical career, Paula Koeller found that she enjoyed working with adolescents and young adults more than any other age group.  It seemed to her that this age group was not always given the attention necessary by health care. She therefore made it a personal goal to “do it differently.” That vision eventually led her to GreenField Health in 2007. 

At GreenField, she realized her dream of having a general medical practice providing health care to adolescents and young adults in a structure that allows for optimal care.  She listens with an open mind, collaborates with patients, families and other providers to improve the health of patients, takes time to answer questions, explains diagnoses, and discusses management options so an informed decision can be reached.

Paula is married and has three children. She and her husband are recent “empty nesters” and now have more time to enjoy traveling, biking, skiing and hiking together. She enjoys knitting, reading, going to the theatre and other art forms, getting together with friends, and new adventures.
