Carla Oberst joined the NERUS team as our Merchandise Manager in January, 2022, assuming merchandise fulfillment for clients seeking to show off their contest wins (decals, apparel, acrylic plaques, and the like).
Carla grew up in Oregon but felt the tug of this great country, so she set out to explore it, and earned one of her undergraduate degrees from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. She returned to Oregon following graduation and obtained a second degree from Western Oregon University in Monmouth, where she lives with two cats, Gizmo and Mocha.
She enjoys playing video games in her spare time, and likes art, especially printing including screen printing (she’s still taking classes in this medium) and wood-block printing.
To stay involved in the community, Carla, a former member of the NCAA UMass women’s rowing team, also is an assistant referee for USRowing, the United States Rowing Association, which is the governing body for the sport of rowing in this country. She works from the Salem corporate office.
