Karla is from Salt Lake City, UT. She studied law in San Francisco, CA and afterwards
she spent 2 years in Guatemala as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer.
Her time in Central America inspired her to become an advocate
for people immigrating to the U.S. She has been practicing immigration law since 1995.
Karla met her husband Brian Siebenlist in the Peace Corps. They are the proud parents of Maya and Gabriel. Both children were born here in Del Ray and went through the public-school system in Alexandria.
Maya dances with Alonzo King LINES Ballet, based in San Francisco, but currently touring the world. Gabe graduated from TC Williams High School in June 2019. He studies linguistics at Emory University-Oxford College. Gabe participated in ROAM from 6th grade through high school graduation. ROAM nurtured his love of music and as a result, Gabe has matured into a musician who writes and performs original music.
Living in Del Ray since 1997 Karla values the richness of diversity in the area.
The need to bring this diversity to ROAM is the foundation for her desire to collaborate
in the creation and promotion of Friends of ROAM.
Friends of ROAM is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit recognized by the IRS. EIN 83-2582015
