Carla Pilar Salazar

Carla Pilar Salazar came from Lima, Peru to Lewis & Clark as an international student. She majored in business and accounting and, while in college, interned at U.S. Bank in the international banking division. Her career exposed her to 3 main industries: public accounting, financial, and retail, working for almost two decades in an e-commerce company where she gained significant experience not only in Finance but also Operations, Customer Service, Purchasing, and IT. She is currently the CFO for Portland's dearest little big orchestra, Pink Martini. Living in Oregon, Carla developed a passion for the outdoors and enjoys hiking, backpacking, and taking a moment to soak in a grand vista. She's certified as a Kundalini Yoga teacher and a big proponent of yoga and meditation. At home in Lake Oswego, Oregon, Carla and her husband enjoy home cooking, exploring fine wines, and celebrating with friends.
