Carla has been with Mahlander’s as a Lighting Consultant since December 2015. After decades managing software and systems engineers for EROS, she decided to pursue her long-held passion for interior design, focusing on lighting and décor. She considers it an honor to help someone feel proud and excited about their new environment as well as expressing themselves with the items they choose for their space.

Her favorite part?  “The customers! Helping them pick things out and getting a great look for their home is great.” By listening intently to her clients, she can help them complete a look which suits them in both terms of style and function. Carla also takes care of our extensive bulb inventory and knows everything you want to know (probably more!) about a light bulb.

Family is important to Carla, so she spends much of her free time with her children and grandson and has been known to come up with fun family activities like pickle ball, game nights and grandparent outings. She also enjoys camping, sewing and – of course – decorating.
