Carla Huggins is the Academic Clinical Coordinator of Education and supervises/coordinates all aspects of physical therapy clinical education at Georgia State University.

Carla is a native of Richmond, Virginia, where she has practiced physical therapy for over 18 years. Carla has worked in both outpatient and home health clinical settings, but her niche has been in the acute care hospital setting for her entire career. She has spent over 11 years in management, having progressed from supervisor to director of both physical therapy and occupational therapy departments. In this role, she has mentored many students and therapy staff. She has been CI credentialed since 2008.
