Paola Tarin, MA

Paola Tarin Medical Assistant

Paola Tarin, a bilingual Certified Medical Assistant with 7 years’ experience graduated from Pima Medical Institute in 2011 with the distinguished director’s honor roll. Her career began in a primary care setting and then she transitioned to a concierge medical practice because while she wanted to be part of the medical field to help patients get better, she found she was unable to do so with the way the allopathic medical model is designed.

Paola is excited about working for Native Sun Nutrition & Functional Medicine because she has a strong belief that our bodies have the ability to heal itself if properly nurtured. She is eager to learn more about functional medicine and assist Dr. Williams with helping patients find and address the underlying cause of their health issues.

Paola's interests outside of work include hiking and exploring the outdoors, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with her family.
