Carla Smith's picture
I am a native North Carolinian and have lived in many areas of the state. I have always followed a Pagan path it seems, but I have actively been practicing for over 15 years. I am a very public Pagan, and proudly wear my Pentagram everyday and everywhere. I follow an eclectic path of Native American/Celtic Shamanistic Paganism. I listen to and talk with the animals and Mother Earth for guidance. An avid student of astrology since the age of twelve, I draw natal charts and interpret them for friends and family. I love working in my garden during my free time – playing in the Mother Earth and talking to the plants. I am a Registered Veterinary Technician and a single mom of 2 grown sons. I currently have a small zoo at home consisting of 3 cats, 4 dogs, 1 bird and 1 very quiet snake. Hobbies when I have time include hiking, camping, reading, making Native American crafts, and astronomy. I enjoy ghost hunting and rock hounding. During quiet times you can find me in front of the TV with a good book, always learning. After I publicly came out as a Pagan in 2000, I began searching for others in my area at the time. My coven became involved with the first PPD in Charlotte in 2002. I was one of the first co-Local Coordinators for the Charlotte NC event - Piedmont PPD. Only 11 people attended the event. The second year in 2003, over 800 people attended. The Charlotte area event hasn't looked back since. I also co-coordinated the Catawba Valley High Country PPD in 2005 (the first year) and 2006. In 2004, I was offered the position of Southern Regional Coordinator for PPD, and I maintained that position until 2011. I was fortunate to be elected to office of Treasurer of National PPD in 2009 and subsequently I was elected Vice President/Membership Coordinator in 2009 as well. I am a firm believer in all the PPD stands for. I took a sabbatical for two years; returning in 2013 when I was re-elected as Vice President.
