She joined the Tarzana office in 2006 and began working and cultivating her skills under the guidance of Tahmeena Ahmed. In 2009 she was named a partner and in 2012 she became the Managing Attorney for the Tarzana office. She enjoys various aspects of management and most recently has begun to embrace the “lean” way of management which the firm has undertaken and is led by Mark Fletcher.

Prior to joining the firm Ms. Carlos received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Davis, with Highest Honors in 1996. During her undergraduate years, she spent one year studying in Mexico City at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico.

Outside of work, Ms. Carlos enjoys spending time with her family. She welcomed her nephew into the family in 2014 and states that the best moments are those spent with him. She is also an avid traveler. She has visited Mexico, where she can use her fluent Spanish. Her first “overseas” trip was to Asia and after that she was hooked. She tries to get away at least once a year and has traveled as far as South American, Europe and Russia. Her dream is to hit the 7 continents in her lifetime.
