Carla Jablonski merged her careers as an actor, writer, and editor when she became a certified communication workshop leader in 2016 for the Alda Center for Communicating Science. She has witnessed the transformative impact of theater exercises as participants experience the power of being truly present, engaging as an active and empathic listener, and tapping into their own passions to create powerful and memorable messages. As with the many authors she has edited, her goal with workshop participants is to guide them to find the most effective ways to use their own unique voices in their communications in meetings, presentations, at conferences, and in writing with multiple audiences.
She has taught a variety of classes in New York and in Nashville, including Public Speaking (Marymount Manhattan College), Cold-Reading Skills for Teachers (for the NY Board of Education), Writing (mediabistro), Theater Games (Vanderbilt University), and Writing Through Improv (Nashville YMCA Arts Program).
She has been an author and an editor for major publishers as well as working with individual clients. She was commissioned to write two books on science for children: Women in Technology and Women in Science. She graduated from Vassar College (BA Anthropology) and NYU Gallatin (MA Interdisciplinary Studies: Cultural Studies, Playwriting, and Arts Administration).
