Carla Douglass

Co-Founder

Carla moved from Vermont to the Tampa Bay area in 2015. Carla served in the U.S. Army for 23 years and currently works for the federal government as a Program Analyst.

Carla served as a Executive Board Director for Veterans First LTD in Phoenix, which is a non-profit organization that provides resources, support and shelter for women veterans. Her hobbies include art involved projects.

Favorite thing about Tampa/St Pete: The friendly environment, the beaches, beautiful sunrise and sunsets. Along with the cultural artistic environment, with a wide variety of activities.

Why SWIM: There is plenty to do in the Tampa Bay area, the thing I found missing in the area is lack of all-inclusive social activities that would enhance the whole LGBTA community. This brought me to create Social Women in Motion (SWIM) a social group, which creates a holistic or well-rounded approach to bringing community members together through organized exclusive activities, which in turn would generate a stronger bond and simply have fun.

On a perfect day I’d: Traveling and traveling and more traveling, my bucket list include a trip to Greece for an extended stay, enjoying the beautiful views and  just chill.
