When Carla moved to Chicago, she quickly became involved with JUF Young Leadership Division--  and she's spent the last nine years helping others find a welcoming introduction to the Jewish community.

She has held many leaderships roles on YLD's board so far, including leading and participating in the JUF Professional Women's Network Mentorship Program and organizing her board's Campaign contributions. She has also been part of several YLD committees, including the inaugural Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee; the Board Development Initiatives Committee; and the Data + Analytics committee. She has also been a Builder of the Mishkan community since 2018.

She brings her passion for inclusion to work as well, where she advocates for women in business, and served on her company's and her MBA program's Women in Business boards.

Carla looks forward to continuing her work with YLD as the incoming board president of the 2021-2022 term.
