Carla is well-recognized in Boston’s financial community, most recently, in the Worcester Business Journal’s Outstanding Women in Business feature, by the MSCPA’s Woman to Watch Awards, and with the 2016 ATHENA Leadership Award. Throughout her career, Carla has positively influenced women leaders in business. She is fully committed to women’s issues and balancing work and family to improve the quality of life for all involved. She founded the successful AAFCPAs’ “Women’s Opportunity Network” (AAFCPAs’ WON) to serve as a platform to discuss challenges for women in the workplace, educate and bring awareness to issues.
Carla’s goal to recruit – and more importantly, retain women in public accounting is achieved through creativity. She continuously seeks new ways to enhance the effectiveness of AAFCPAs’ women leadership programs. She encourages millennial females to explore the flexibility offered in public accounting, make personal drivers and passions a part of their professional success, and to ask for what they want. She also encourages young female professionals to build a network of strong leaders and mentors who can help them envision a bigger and better path for themselves. Carla volunteered her time, and shared advice as a professional Mentor for the Boston Business Journal’s Bizwomen Mentoring Monday, February 14th in Boston.
