Carla was elected divisional member for Ash in 2021. She was also elected councillor for Ash Vale in the borough district elections in May 2023.
Ash Vale has long been home for Carla and as a result she has great knowledge about the local area and those who live there. Carla worked for many years for the MOD in various roles from Senior HR Manager to Commercial/Finance Manager. Her enthusiasm for helping the community began, when having taken voluntary redundancy, she volunteered as an Adviser at Ash Citizens Advice.
In March 2020 Carla founded the Ash, Ash Vale & Ash Green Coronavirus Support Group to help and support the local community throughout the pandemic and for this has been nominated for and won community awards.
Carla's aim is to assist in resolving and addressing people's concerns with the intention of making Ash, Ash Vale and Surrey an even better place to live. She is particularly concerned about antisocial behaviour, those finding it difficult to make ends meet, vulnerable adults and their care, and the number of housing developments springing up with no/insufficient supporting infrastructure; these are her county focuses. She is also supporting the campaign to regain full access to Ash Ranges.
