  1. We will miss Carla at the NASW Foundation and as a Social Work colleague. Carla’s unique style gave us focus and balance with a sense of humor we will always remember. She was a bright light and I was priviledged to know her.

  2. A commitment to the NASW Foundation linked us together. Albeit for but a short time, i am honored to have served on the Foundation’s Board with someone who clearly illustrated the values and passion that represent why our Foundation exists.

  3. We were very fortunate to have Carla on our NASW Foundation Board. She was smart, insightful, helpful–and had a terrific sense of humor. Carla’s professional experience, along with her life experiences, gave her a unique and valuable perspective. We miss her professionally–and personally–and are grateful for her many contributions.
