    Carla and Riley

    $4,127.00 raised
    GOAL: $4,000.00

    Carla is an island girl gone country. She is originally from St Thomas, US Virgin Islands, with a family of West Indian descent. She and her family moved to Texas during the big oil days in the ‘70s where her family settled. Carla visited the Murfreesboro with friends when she was 20 and fell in love, not only with Tennessee, but a gentleman from this great state.

    She moved here when she turned 21 and has never looked back. Carla graduated from MTSU with a degree in psychology. Since, she and her husband purchased a farm and began raising angus cattle and children. Carla is the mother of three kids between the ages of 8 and 13, who are her life. They lost her husband and their father, an Army veteran, in January of 2015 very suddenly and have been on a grief journey trying to move forward and live a fearless life to its fullest.

    As part of the healing process, Carla is working toward starting her own non-profit to help widows and widowers who are currently facing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless to help them put their lives back together with purpose. She enjoys traveling, cooking, reading, bad sci-fi movies, judge shows, great food and wine.
