    Born and raised in West Haven, Connecticut, Carla has always had a passion for the spa industry and loves to make people feel good. She found the field of Esthetics satisfying once she discovered how holistic and traditional skin care can truly rejuvenate the body as well as the mind.

    After receiving her certification in Aesthetics in 1999, she worked for luxury spas and salons as well as plastic surgeons, gaining valuable experience in the area of Medical Aesthetics. She also had the opportunity to teach Aesthetics for several years.

    Carla provides customized facials, microdermabrasions, peels, brow and lash tinting, waxing and body treatments. She has stayed current through ongoing training taught by physicians, nurses and licensed skin care professionals. Carla feels strongly about giving back to the local community by donating gift certificates to local organizations and has provided complimentary services to individuals dealing with cancer.

    While COVID has severely impacted the beauty industry, the pandemic provided Carla the opportunity to reawaken and redefine her purpose and passion: To incorporate wellness, stress reduction, and healing into her business philosophy.

    Awaken The Soul became her new business name because healing COMES from the soul.

    Carla incorporates Therapeutic Touch with many of her skincare treatments if the client chooses to enhance a peaceful and calming experience for the body, mind and spirit.

    “Your skin is part of a greater system within your body and all of it is connected to your mental and physical health. What better way to have beautiful skin but to feel at a place of bliss while looking good”?

    Carla will be partnering with Women’s Wellness Center of Milford,CT
