Carla started her career out as a Dental Hygienist working for nearly 6 years before “retiring” from the profession to raise 3 children. After 16 years as a stay at home mom and thousands of hours working out at the gym the thought of returning to the Dental field was not appealing! Upon encouragement from her husband, Carla enrolled in the Academy of Applied Personal Training Education (AAPTE) where she received her Personal Training Certification and a Certification in training populations with chronic diseases. She went on to learn and get certified in the Melt Method which helps people rehydrate their connective tissue to get out and stay out of chronic pain. The last piece of Carla’s Health trifecta was when she became a Holistic Health Coach at the Academy of Healing Nutrition. The combination of Exercise, Mind body practice and food as medicine completes the health model.
“Joining the Uplift team just feels so right! I love the idea of empowered women. I raised 2 of them myself!”
What Uplifts her? Spending time with family and a beautiful beach!
Her guilty pleasure? Pizza and mindless TV!
