Paula Abitia
McNeill Program Coordinator
McNeill Academic Program

I am a first-generation college graduate, CU-Boulder alumna and graduate of the McNeill Academic Program. I earned my BA in Ethnic Studies and i’m currently pursuing my MA in Educational Foundations, Policy and Practice. I proudly call Denver home and never see myself living outside of Colorado. I am an avid Buffs fan and love to attend as many basketball games at Coors Event Center as possible. Books, tea and hot cheetos are essential parts of my self-care routine. I am deeply committed to supporting students during their higher education journeys and I’m thrilled to be part of the McNeill staff.
