She worked as a Float Pool Registered Nurse at a local hospital. She was trained to work on several units, such as Pediatrics, Women’s Services, Medical-Surgical, Oncology, Cardiac, Orthopedics, Rehab, Behavioral Health, and the Stroke unit. Carla then decided to go back to school to receive her MSN in acute care and family practice and graduated from Colorado State University-Pueblo.

Carla is a certified Nurse Practitioner who always had a passion for working with pediatrics, but it was during her clinical rotation where she fell in love with primary care for both pediatrics and family practice.
