Prior to joining ASPIRE, Carla spent the previous two years on a working holiday in Canada. During her time there she worked for a popular outdoor clothing and equipment store in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Carla also spent two summers as a Ceramics Specialist at summer camp, finding her passion for working with children and helping them learn and grow.

Growing up and attending school in regional NSW Carla has firsthand experience with the challenges faced by the students she works with. As a Project Officer with the Regional ASPIRE team Carla is happy to be back in Australia and close to home.

Carla studied at the University of Wollongong which is more than a seven hours drive from her home town. Each and every uni break Carla would return home, working in a mine to pay for uni. Carla wants all the students she works with to know that university is possible for anyone who wants to go, regardless of where they are from.

When Carla isn’t working you will find her out and about exploring or off visiting friends and family.
