My name is Carla Adriana Salgado. I was born in Mexico in the state of Guerrero and I am the eldest of 4 children. At the age of 4 years old I was fortunate enough to come to the United States. I grew up in Goleta, CA and moved to Lompoc when I was in the 5th grade. I graduated from Lompoc High School and my interest at the time was teaching, as I started taking classes at Allan Hancock College I discovered that teaching was going to be harder work than I expected. I started working for Lompoc Unified School as an Instructional Assistant Bilingual to see if teaching was my true passion or if my interest was somewhere else.
               After graduating Hancock and working part time at LUSD I decided to pursue my BA in Social Science at Chapman University. In 2009 after 5 years at LUSD, because of budget cuts I decided to look for a full time job. I took a break from the school environment and worked for Marriott Hotel in Buellton in the sales department. After 2 years God had other plans for me and brought me closer to home and to him! I started working at La Purísima School in June of 2012 as Office Administrator. I love this job because I can share my faith with faculty, staff, and families.
               I have a son by the name of Eden and he is my world. For fun when I manage to get a babysitter for Eden I love to get pedicures. I enjoy listening, singing and dancing to different types of music. Mi Amore pizza is my favorite pizza restaurant but I love pozole most of all. When I spend time with Eden I love to sing, cuddle, talk and watch TV in bed with him.
