About Carla

I feel very fortunate to work for NBN as I have a strong interest in animals and nature. Having graduated in 2011 my career has predominantly involved working within the animal welfare sector and volunteering for local charities so I am very excited to take on the new challenge of Administration Officer.

I am a keen walker and will often be out with my partner and dog exploring the countryside on the weekends. I recently developed an interest in bees and hope to transform my yard this year with pollinator-friendly plants to encourage urban bees.
