Karla is the co-chair of the 2019 Green and Gold Gala at the Florida Aquarium, a USF grad who has been an adjunct professor at her alma mater, and an excellent podcast contributor. If you were thinking about going, stop thinking and starting doing! Tickets are going fast and are limited. We’ll all be there.
