Bio: 
Hello, My name is Carla. I have been travelling and exploring places on my own since the age of 18. I am now a very young 53. I raised 2 girls on my own that are now independent young women which gives me the opportunity to do what I've always wanted to do since I was a teenager which is volunteer full time. I have been working as an Executive Assistant for many years. I have also been a Personal Assistant, Front Desk Manger, Office Manager, Day Care Provider, Administrative Assistant and home school teacher for young children and also an Event Coordinator. I also believe the 20 years of being a single mother and full time professional has given me a set of disciplines and strength of character that are inherently useful. I have lived in large cities, on a communal farm, in the mountains of Vermont and in a cabin on a beach in Mexico (near Guatamala). I have traveled to Europe a few times, to the Caribean, all of the United States, Costa Rica several times, Mexico many times, Puerto Rico, Jamaica and more. I enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, skiing, writing and drawing. I get along with people of every caliber and my happiest moments in life are helping others.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have volunteered which children of parents are incarcerated doing Christmas and holiday events. I have worked with In God We Deliver cooking for AIDS patients, I volunteer with Free Arts New York which gives kids a day of crafts, art, food and entertainment. I am also a member of New York Cares which has numerous ongoing volunteer opportunities. When I was a young mother living in Vermont I worked as a community program coordinator for a Ride Share program for the southern portion of the State of Vermont which put elderly and disabled people in touch with people offering to take them to their care centers, errands, doctors appointments, etc. for a fee-per-mile payment. I was accepted to the Peace Corps several years ago but regrettably there were no positions in my field at the time.
