Carla began her career in Social Service over 28 years ago, coordinating services for adults and children with intellectual and physical disabilities in Illinois, New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. She started working with Alegria Community Living in 2007 in the initial stages of transition from the developmental centers to community placement. She has been the Home Administrator for two Alegria’s residential facilities. In addition to the management of the individual homes, Carla provides essential training to all Alegria staff. In 2019, she was promoted to take on the role of Deputy Director for Quality Assurance which furthers her philosophy to promote independence and quality of life deserved by all. Carla has been a certified yoga instructor for the past 25 years. She has taught all ages and abilities in Ashtanga Vinyasa, restorative and prenatal yoga. Her dedication to helping others in both forms of service is a natural balance as she aspires to remain present throughout this journey.
