Carla has the vision to create simplicity out of extreme complexity. Her creations are always visually attractive, regardless of the difficulty of the subject. She is a self starter, self manager and a multi-tasker. It has been an extreme pleasure to work along side Carla for the last year and a half. She always brings a seriousness to the work, as well as uplift to group interaction.

Carla is incredibly attentive, efficient, hands on, and available at the ready. Our company is fast paced, with narrow windows of time to bang out our marketing materials. Carla is fantastic with deadlines and reminds us of them, rather than vice versa! A total treat.

Carla's life journey has prepared her to guide organizations to grow into their vision and mission. With her quiet wisdom and strength in her leading hand, she helped our organization to find its path to continue to serve youth in the state of Massachusetts. She helped us to re-define our purpose and build upon the programmatic and policy work Mass Alliance has been doing for the past 38 years. All of us are re-committed to self-empower youth, support organizations and youth providers and mobilize communities to change the context where youth live, work and play so they can have a better and healthier future.

Carla was able to transform my thoughts and ideas into the perfect book cover and layout. She took the time necessary to create something special and did not hesitate to make adjustments as needed. Carla's dedication to the craft is clearly demonstrated through her professionalism and products. I look forward to working with her again in the near future.

As an author, I wanted the very best look and book design possible for my new novel, String Theories. Carla found two of the best photographs I could imagine for the book's cover and perfectly overlaid them, laying text over them in eye-stopping ways. The interior pages of the book are spot-on perfect. She knows design beauty, the intricate details of designing books for publication, and she was happily and readily available for consultation. Design, attention to detail, commitment, on schedule, on budget, and a joy to work with.

What a beautiful, meaningful website Carla created for AIO’s weekend backpack program! Not only does she have an excellent eye for what works on a page, she immersed herself in our mission, checked the facts, and suggested ways to tell our story of hungry children with clarity and feeling. We are so grateful that we found her.

Carla helped us at a critical juncture in our website development. Under tight constraints of a limited budget and pressing deadline, she was able to offer us possibilities and solutions that fit our needs and goals. She understood our priorities and the message we wanted to convey. Carla is a pleasure to work with, good at listening and patient with the seeming vagaries of our staff input and always responded promptly to our questions and concerns. We’re delighted with our final product and grateful for her expertise that made it possible.

Carla created exactly the products we needed to promote Healthy Aging policies, information, and community outreach. The messages she developed are still used by the agency. Carla contributed significantly to strengthening the Health Department's relationships with racial and ethnic minority populations, particularly Latino and Native American communities.
