A little more about Carla…
Carla Streifel grew up on the West Coast of British Columbia, and lives in Surrey, BC, about 45 minutes south of Vancouver. She has her Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia as well as her Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Toronto. Soon after receiving her MBA, she became an Implementation Consultant for a Vancouver technology firm, implementing and supporting treasury management software for clients across North America. This role provided her with a strong background and excellent experience in Software Support.
Carla has also held a variety of leadership positions at a Canada-wide telephone directory publisher, mainly in Operations and Sales Support. She decided to leave the work-force and stay home during her daughter’s early years, while working part-time as a freelance marketing assistant to real estate agents.
