Paul Casucci
Vice President

As a young boy Paul once took a ride on a horse that was way too fast and it scared him to death.  He was hooked for life and has had a profound respect for horses ever since.  Paul holds a BS in Physics from California State University, Long Beach and has been a prolific engineer.  As a Senior Project Engineer in aerospace Paul told Eva that if she got accepted to UC Davis he would quit his job in Costa Mesa and they would move to Davis.  As you can see he is a man of his word and they never looked back.  Paul still engineers but has spent a lot of time assisting Dr. Casucci in her roles.  Paul has spent an entire year volunteering his weekends and holidays at Pacific Crest Equine helping Dr. Casucci in every way he could to keep things going.  Paul loves animals and is a proud contributor to their growing business.  "We treat our clients as friends and our employees as family."
