Carla was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, and graduated from American University in Washington D.C. She has a diverse background in operations and marketing, having worked in a number of industries including two major record labels in New York City before returning to Jacksonville to be the C.O.O. of the family business, an industrial engineering company that manufactured various forms of equipment in the fluid power industry.
Being the daughter of an inventor has given Carla a particular affinity for “inventivity”, having shaped her as a creatively minded professional. After her father passed away in 2007, she started her own marketing and PR firm in Orlando with a partner until making the decision to begin consulting in 2010 so she could integrate her professional interests with having a more hands on role in her sons' lives while they were in their formative years.
In 2015 she decided to expand her consulting practice to include personal and professional coaching. She serves on several boards in Orlando and enjoys a very active life with her husband Picton and their sons Quinn and Griffin, ages 13 and 11. Carla loves the outdoors and is an avid runner, yogi and Paddleboarder, and her family loves travel, surfing, mountain biking and any adventure they can pursue.
