Carla gained her MA in Voice Studies at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, and has been working for the business programmes at Central since graduating. She originally trained and worked in Musical Theatre, performing in touring productions such as The Rocky Horror Show, before moving into communications in the corporate sector and the Civil Service.

Clients include HM Revenue and Customs, British Airways, Department of Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, KPMG, Aukette Swanke, Marks and Spencer, Unicef, The Financial Times and Imperial College London.
