About Carla

IMG_1745Originally from Toronto, I’ve been blessed with living in some of the most fascinating and beautiful places in the world – Taiwan, Vancouver, Shanghai, Honolulu and San Francisco.

A little less than 2 years ago, I moved to Rome to be with my soulmate, Alessandro and his 2 kids.

I like to think of myself as a renaissance women, but maybe I just have a short attention span.  I’ve owned a Mandarin Language School, developing a China Business consulting practice, ran an online advertising agency in Hawaii, built the non-profit Canada China Environmental Forum from the ground up to share best environmental practices between Canada and China, and spearheaded Canada’s national vehicle retirement program.  Oh yeah, I’m also a Reiki Master.  Now, I spend my days traveling throughout Europe and CIS states – from the Netherlands to Kazakhstan – bringing international students to the USA to study in high schools and universities.

No matter what I am doing, I’m happiest when I feel that I can make a positive difference in people’s lives, though deeper compassion & comprehension of ourselves and others.
