For nearly twenty years, Carla has dedicated her focus in the field of Social Service. Her experience includes respite care, independent and supported living, vocational development, supported employment and recreational day programing in Illinois, NYC and the Bay Area. She began working with Alegria in 2007 in the beginning stages of transition into community placement. These opportunities have nurtured a philosophy that remains to this day: client centered. Her background in yoga and holistic arts have assisted in maintaining a very simple theme where helping others is at the core. Carla has found a sense of similarity in approach with Alegria Community Living and continues to be enthusiastic about serving people with Developmental Disabilities.
