Karla served in the United States Air Force as an enlisted Security Forces member for 5 years. While she served time in England, North Dakota, Washington D.C. and Afghanistan, she became curious about the relationship between gender and war. After she was accepted to Dartmouth College, she became interested in enlisted servicewomen and their role in defense. Through the years, Karla has conducted rigorous research on U.S. enlisted servicewomen and the various initiatives deployed by the U.S. government in an effort to reach women in foreign countries. She is the recipient of the Posse Veterans Scholarship and the Stamps Scholarship. She is also a War and Peace Studies fellow at Dartmouth College.
