Meet our Administrative Assistant, Carla Windham. Carla obtained her AAS degree in Secretarial Science from Pamlico Community College and immediately began her career with a New Bern, NC, law firm. She later joined a civil engineering firm, also in New Bern, where she worked four years until transferring to the home office in Chapel Hill, NC. It was then that she went back to school at night and obtained an AAS degree in Business Administration. For more than 15 years, she worked in civil engineering as Administrative Assistant to the President and/or Vice President.
After moving to the Rocky Mount area, Carla began work with Pearsall Operating Company in 1987 and transferred over to First Carolina Management, Inc. when it was formed in 1989.
