About Carla:

Carla is an acreage-living mother of three who faces the challenge most women encounter who are both passionate about their families as well as their creative endeavours: too much good stuff to do in this life!

Carla is a trained health coach through her work with Epidemic Answers Health Coach Training Course and Cynthia Pasquella of the Institute for Transformational Nutrition and has deepened her clinical knowledge of health, wellness, and functional medicine through her training with Functional Medicine University and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition, as well as her intensive yoga teacher training. She also holds an MA in English Literature with a heavy background in Women’s and Gender Studies, Psychology, and Academic, Business, and Creative Writing.

Carla is also formally trained in a variety of other disciplines including magazine editing and publishing, social sciences, humanities, business development, and is usually taking one class or another regarding personal and professional growth. She has taught at both the university and community levels and has created educational materials both through contract by educational institutions and through her own initiatives and independent research. She has acted as instructor, director, writer, publisher, producer, program developer, and editor for a wide variety of projects and founded and ran the now laid to rest Cahoots Magazine as Editor-in-Chief for 8 years. She is a published creative and academic writer, enthusiastic lecturer, creative workshop instructor, and a caring and effective coach.

She has led many workshops in health and wellness, creative writing, philosophy, media studies, essay writing, and critical thinking for children, youth, and adults since 1998 and has written, produced and delivered thousands of pages of curriculum for online as well as in-person delivery.

To Carla, health and wellness involves all aspects of the self, including the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. She encourages creativity and self-empowerment for anyone at any age or social status and is absolutely passionate about working with children, youth, and adults so they can find their own power to make their lives full of hope, happiness, and meaning. Alternative education is also a passion of hers, and she is continuously creating innovative ways to change lives through life-long learning by delivering her content using a balance of a targeted use of our current technology with personalized experiences and community initiatives and support.

Carla specializes in family health with a focus on functional, holistic, natural health and wellness, with specific interest in functional neurology, nutrition, digestive health, the science of mind/body practices, stress reduction, childhood chronic illness, geriatrics, autoimmunity, and immunology using the principles of lifestyle medicine.
