Carla is part of the policy team in Scottish Government that focuses on adult social care support. She originally trained as a biochemist, but found she was more passionate about public policy and working together with people than she was about test tubes! She has worked in Scottish Government since 2015 and has been focusing on co-developing a reform programme for adult social care for the last 2 years. What matters to her is our planet, family, using data and evidence in policy development, and learning from lived experience.
