      Karla has worked in the health care industry for 19 years locally in the Tampa Bay Area.  Formerly with the Morton Plant Mease Health System working in patient outreach and patient education Karla’s passion for helping others became evident early on.  For  thirteen of those years  a passion for helping others and healthcare was successfully married to a passion for working with physician’s, support staff and volunteers to make a positive impact on patient lives.  Specific areas of focus have been on geriatric patient disease treatment with physician’s and their practices to address specific patient needs with dementia and cardiovascular disease.  Karla decided that being able to apply her previous experience and education to serve those in times of need would fulfill a lifelong dream of helping others transition through times of need.
