Carla was recently featured in FM Magazine offering guidance on 5 Ways to Develop as an Authentic Leader, and she was named one of the Most Powerful Women in the Accounting Profession in 2021 and 2022 by the Association of International Certified Professional Accountants (AICPA) and CPA Practice Advisor Magazine. She has been nominated again in 2023 for this prestigious honor.

Carla recently spoke about authentic leadership at the Women’s Leadership Summit for the Massachusetts Society of CPAs. She reflected on her personal journey and early leadership experience, the moment she realized she wasn’t being authentically herself, and how she pivoted.

“To me, authentic leadership means leading in a way that is innate and natural to you,” said Carla. “Many times, we try to fit someone else’s narrative. Often, others try to tell us how to lead. (Early in my journey, this included a lot of ‘mansplaining.’) The fact is, we are all different and when we are authentic to ourselves, we are genuine—and when we are genuine, we build trust.”
